Caitlind r.c. Brown
CAITLIND r.c. Brown is a Calgary-based artist and collaborator creating intimate, immersive, and participatory installations for diverse publics. A frequent collaborator with Wayne Garrett, Caitlind’s work has appeared internationally at Japan Alps Art Festival (Japan), Weisman Art Museum (USA), Garage Museum of Contemporary Art (Russia), Pera Museum (Turkey), and throughout Europe. Before working with WRECK CITY, Caitlind curated The House Project, a group installation of eight artists with an interest in transformative and re-imagined spaces. Based out of a small home in Calgary, at the end of the project, the house was knocked down and all the art inside demolished with it. An experiment in ephemerality, domestic interventionism, and institutional critique, The House Project led her towards co-founding WRECK CITY curatorial collective.
JENNIFER Crighton is an artist, curator, musician, and cultural administrator. She graduated from The Alberta College of Art and Design in 2008 and has maintained and active practice in both visual art and music, working with local arts groups such as The High Performance Rodeo, The Arbour Lake Sghool, Momo Dance Theatre, The Summerwood Warren and Pith Gallery and Studios. She has toured Canada and the US with two different musical projects, and her current band, Devonian Gardens, is signed to the Brooklyn based label Beyond Beyond is Beyond. She has a special interest in community, especially as this relates to our sense of home, our domestic and cultural spaces, and the people we gather around ourselves for support and inspiration. For her, working in any creative field is a collective endeavor, where the whole is always greater than the sum of its parts.
