  • Performance: Dialogue no. 8 by Ed Janzen and Collette Broeders (known as Janzen+Broeders)

Performance: Dialogue no. 8 by Janzen+Broeders

Time and Date: Thursday, June 20, 2024, 4pm-6pm

Location: 2nd floor, Art Windsor-Essex, 401 Riverside Dr. W, Windsor

Cost: $10 gallery admission. AWE is always free for current AWE members and for Treaty Card Indian Status and Métis Card Holders. This event is part of AWE at Night.

The performances and installation of Dialogue no. 8 respond to over 500 ‘letters of love’ submitted by participants. The artists directly engage with these texts through rhythmic, interactive performances that transform and expand the gallery space throughout the duration of this exhibit. The performances follow 3 rules: 1) Perform letters of love submissions, 2) Connect with the textures of the space, and 3) Embody the sense of touch.

Ed Janzen and Collette Broeders have been collaborating since 2020. Their work consists of performative large-scale drawings and video installations expressed through mark-making and rhythmic movement. Written text, surroundings of place, and tactile sensory experience influence their work. Their individual practices share an interest in mark-making, walking, and the use of text.
