En Masse

En Masse (created in collaboration with entomologist Christopher Plenzich) exhibited for six weeks (20 April-29 May, 2015) at FOFA Gallery in Montreal. The show included video installations (including the Malacosoma disstria works), handmade textiles, drawings made by caterpillars and custom lasercut glueless viewing boxes housing research insects raised on site. Chris and I inhabited the exhibition for much of the show – caring for caterpillars, chatting with visitors (and each other), hosting workshops (on silk fusion, pheromone trails, and caterpillar drawing), trying to work on thesis writing, and posting to Facebook and Twitter. Works from this show have been re-exhibited in different variations and smaller scales in multiple international group shows. (See the News page for a list of exhibitions after En Masse).
