A distinct aggregation / A dynamic equivalent / A generous ethic of invention: Six writers respond to six sculptures

Hosted by Banff Centre for Arts and Creativity

August 8, 2019 – September 27, 2020

A project by Aislinn Thomas with Anna Bowen, Angela Marie Schenstead, Crystal Mowry, Laura Burke, Catherine Frazee, Nicole Kelly Westman, and Shannon Finnegan.

This commissioned work is available in two formats: as a sound-work available to sign out from the Walter Phillips Gallery front desk or streamed via the embedded SoundCloud widget; as well as through a broadsheet featuring audio transcriptions of each response as well as text drawings from the collaborative series, “A seat at the table, a slice of the pie”, the result of a dialogue between Aislinn Thomas and Shannon Finnegan about the practice of visual description.
