In the past few years, I have found myself moving away from the idea of art as object, turning instead to actions and printed matter in an attempt to create an experience and to elicit feelings from people in the public sphere. This has led to performing interventions in public spaces and bypassing the gallery system. In 2013, I founded The Prohibitive Genus Collective through which I run projects that occur in the public sphere. The collective interprets collaboration very loosely and plays around with the definition of what is a collective. My recent work has been experienced mostly in the streets of my neighbourhood in Vancouver and in people’s personal spaces, when they take an apple, a can of sardines, or a zine home.
I am delighted to revisit my sketchbook submission from 2011. As I write this, it is 2017 and in my work, I am currently exploring the theme of happiness.
