Festivals: M:ST 7 Festival September 26 - October 11, 2014.
D’Arcy Wilson is an interdisciplinary artist based out of Halifax, NS. Through her work, she seeks ties to the natural world by inserting herself into wildernesses, or bestowing acts of kindness upon nature; nevertheless, the ability to truly know and partake in this other world is elusive. While her projects demonstrate awkwardness in the landscape and lack of understanding, they also highlight her destructive potential as a human, and alienation from other animals. During MST7 D’Arcy will host a memorial service for Calgary’s lost wildlife and prairie habitat— an opportunity to collectively mourn the city’s incompatibility with nature.
