About The Event

For artists Reilly Knowles and Michelle Wilson, hands in motion allow the mind to slow and listen. In this spirit they would like to invite participants at their 42 x 81 presentation to bring their textile projects or pick up some of the supplied materials and stitch as they discuss their collaborative, intuitive textile work and their practices' relationship to water.

Michelle Wilson is an artist and mother of French/British descent. In her current work she challenges the human exceptionalism and white supremacy at the heart of Euro-American archive. She is currently completing a Ph.D. candidate in Art and Visual Culture at the University of Western Ontario.

"I've rarely met a lake I didn't jump into, but when I dove into Clear Lake with break of dawn, I felt renewed and invigorated, like I could keep going in the face of great loss."

Reilly Knowles is an interdisciplinary artist of mixed European heritage. He is currently exploring how scavenging and foraging can be implemented as parts of a sustainable and bioregionally-specific artistic practice. He earned his BFA from the University of Western Ontario in 2020.

"Many of the old houses in my hometown were built over natural springs, and often the cellars would flood with water, a kind of open bleeding from the heart of the limestone mountain."
