On view at Gales Gallery as part of You're Always Coming When I'm Going, an exhibition presented by Silverfish Magazine and the Art History Graduate Students Association with Anna Daliza, Irum, Saysah Yoroonatii and Lina Wu from June 18 - 22, 2022. This exhibition emerged from the Sivlerfish Artist and Writer program which also involved 8 weeks of collaborative skill-sharing and a final publication.
Hood is an exploration of shifting interiorities via mechanical pencil on heavy vellum. The competing visual languages of biological diagrams, print ephemera tracings, and other collaged pieces are folded together in the knight’s helmet. This reflective suit of armour serves as a casing for ecosystems of thought teeming beneath the surface. Herein lies a soft and malleable site of transformation hidden by the rigid shell. Scraps of text are sourced from Perfume Genius and Fiona Apple song lyrics, original writing, found poetry, as well as portions of Irum’s text, “on the swallow, and her belly.” How many passing rocks harbour secret ecologies underneath? What delineates inside and outside? What separates you and I?
