Of Domain and Dominion /// 2017 /// Meg Harder + Tanya Corrigan
Of Domain and Dominion was made in partnership with poet Tonya Korigan for an art show at The Museum featuring collaborations by local artists. The project was conceived as a poetic and visual “exquisite corpse" like convesation in image and text arising from each artist's rambles through Kitchener's Victoria Park. The partnership and subject of study grew from our mutual interest in small ecology, long history, colonialism, and community. This process-oriented collaboration is composed of alternating layers of semitransparent images and poetry that successively challenge past gestures while provoking the next page of image or text. The experiment is determinedly conversational and inconclusive.
