Reciprocal Encounter is an exploration of art that asks for more than to be looked at. The publication and audio projects represent a tracing of the curator, musicians' and artists’ memories, connections to land, and sensory experiences of making and looking. The nine artists involved in the project work in various media including animation, installation, photography, and fibre. Selected works include a public art project that fills Toronto with colour and question relationships to the Indigenous histories of Toronto, light-based photographic installations, and sensory work that draws connections to a small island in Eastern Ontario.
The publication explores a history of the senses in art and features the work of the nine artists, acting as a mobile, handheld exhibition of the artist projects and the work of two audio artists on a limited edition mixtape.
The publication and cassette tape of Brigitte Bardon't & Nonswimmer's tracks are INCLUDED in the $32 download cost for the album.
