EXHIBITION HISTORY

 2012: The Revaluables (Let Me Count the Ways…)- Dooryard Arts Festival, Woodstock, N.B.
• An interactive installation fueled by viewer participation. The Revaluables consists of carefully scavenged and tenderly altered mementos.  The installation invites the viewer make a keepsake of any piece in the exhibit, providing they leave something (anything goes!) of equal value in its place.  The worth of both items is entirely up to the discretion of the viewer.  In choosing their memento and making the exchange, the viewer attaches a worth to an object that otherwise has no market value.  The viewer’s contribution then, in turn, becomes part of the installation.
2012: Reaching for the Sky- Ingrid Mueller Art and Concepts – Saint John, N.B.
2012: Look At Us Now – Third Space Gallery, Saint John, N.B.
2011: Untitled (performance with D’Arcy Wilson & CopShades) – Saint John, N.B.
• A collaborative live projection alongside a live musical performance by rock group, CopShades.  Thematically, the performance fuses elements of Wilson’s interests—Naturalist based histories and wilderness lore—with my own interests, such as, authenticity of memory and history and images evoking nostalgia.  As a whole, the performance acted as a multi-disciplinary exploration of the position of the naturalist/explorer in our collective sentimental history.
