Festival of Contemporary Artworks
August 15 – 17, 2018
Third Shift Festival
Saint John, New Brunswick
THIRD SHIFT is a festival of public contemporary artworks presented by Third Space, a not-for-profit artist-run centre in Saint John, New Brunswick. Established in 2015, THIRD SHIFT aims to offer citizens a unique opportunity to engage with contemporary art and re-imagine their city. THIRD SHIFT holds space for new experiences and communal exchange through the exhibition of temporary installations, interventions, performances and projections in the heart of Uptown Saint John. All activities are free of charge and open to the public.
I’m excited to announce that I will be presenting porcelain and touch-media installation, Surface Rupture to Third Shift. Really excited to see people interact with this installation about the memory of touch.
Memories captured in our flesh are often recalled vividly, relaying both a narrative experience and a felt sensation. Surface Rupture explores the skin’s surface and how touch can penetrate, shift, break, expand and ripple our emotional and physical senses.
