storytime… will be both a performance and a sculptural installation. The performance will be a live reading and re-amping of a selection of excerpts from Virginia Woolf’s, To The Lighthouse, which borrows from the spatio-temporal shifting methodologies of both Woolf and Alvin Lucier. Each transforms text through processual means, Woolf through laying asynchronous narratives of the everyday alongside one another with a complex mixed vocality of interior and audible voices, and Lucier through embodied repetition and re-recording until the spoken word of his own stuttering voice describing his physical location becomes sonic surround.
jake moore is an artist that works at the intersections of material, text, and vocality. moore considers her primary medium to be space and its occupation; this idea expands the understanding of her artistic practice to include administrative projects and other acts of building capacity as a sculptural method – one that changes the form and volume of public spaces. Originally from Winnipeg, Manitoba, she has exhibited nationally for over twenty years and has taught in Quebec and Newfoundland and lectured widely. Her interest in social and cultural practices has led to positions in organizations as varied in size and intention as MAWA (Mentoring Artists for Women’s Art) in Winnipeg, Studio XX in Montreal, and the FOFA Gallery at Concordia University. Currently living and working in Montreal, she sits on the Board of Directors at Optica, and both the Advisory Council and the Acquisitions Committee of the Leonard and Bina Ellen Gallery. moore has exhibited nationally at, aceartinc.,Plug IN, the WAG, (all in Winnipeg), The Walter Phillips Gallery, Banff, and Optica and the Musée d’art contemporain in Montreal amongst others. She has been on the editorial collective of the online publication .dpi produced by feminist art and technology centre, Studio XX where she wrote the brief for Matricules, their online database and history. She has published in Critical Distance, Poolside, C magazine, Canadian art.dpi, and written multiple catalogue essays, most recently, “the Water Carrier” for François Morelli, and “this is the sound that bird makes” for Chloë Lum and Yannick Desranleau. She is currently a PhD Candidate in Art History and Communication Studies at McGill University.
