A Third Skin Unites Us
Live Performance: Blair Fornwald and Sandee Moore.
Fornwald & Moore enact the risk and trust inherent in caring relationships. Drawing on Marcel Duchamp’s notion of the infrathin, an imperceptible separation or difference between two things, and Roland Barthes’ observation that separation is also a bond, the artists physicalize their bond through prickly, sticky and ephemeral materials.
Sandee Moore proposes to animate social relationships through personal exchange via artwork in media such as performance, video, installation, and interactive electronic sculpture. Moore has screened and exhibited across Canada (including The Surrey Art Gallery, The Art Gallery of Alberta, Plug In ICA, The Winnipeg Art Gallery, The Dalhousie Art Gallery, The Blackwood Gallery, and The Dunlop Art Gallery) and in Japan.
Blair Fornwald is an interdisciplinary artist based in Regina, SK, Treaty Four Territory, where she is Dunlop Art Gallery and RPL Film Theatre’s Curator of Moving Image and Performance. Fornwald holds a BFA from the University of Regina and an MFA from Western University. Her curatorial, visual, and performance art practices are united by a collaborative impulse and interests in the aesthetics of failure, the expression of vulnerability, and the use of humour to confront difficult truths. She has presented work across Canada, the United States, and in Germany.
