Dance of the Damned

My partner Bill Friesen expressed interest in working collaboratively on a project to test whether gender has anyimpact on making art. So we dreamed up the Dance of the Damned. Together we built the structure for eight figures, using twigs and straw. Our idea was that they should represent humanity, loosely tethered together in a group, and doomed. We each took 4 figures to work on. We exhibited them in a gallery setting in Victoria (Xchanges) and an outdoor setting in Errington; viewers couldn't tell which of us had made which individual figure. The only difference I see is that since I can sew and Bill can't, our way of costuming the characters differs.
