PHANTOM WING

After WRECK CITY: an Epilogue for 809, the curators were invited to organize a similar pre‐demolition project in the 1960s wing of the historic King Edward School. Entitled PHANTOM WING, the project invited 30 artists to transform the abandoned wing, creating an infestation, a psychedelic portal, a fire-bell installation, a Girl Gang Dance Party, water sculptures, a politergeist, pre-apocalyptic beasts, intercom performances, and more! The resulting exhibition was both an echo and a bang: a reflection and a mirage. In essence, PHANTOM WING proposed the creation of an architectural phantom limb – an event designed to resonate long after the building was severed from its adjoining sandstone counterpart.

 

PHANTOM WING was organized by independent Artist-Curators: Matthew Mark Bourree, Caitlind r.c. Brown, Jennifer Crighton, Shawn Mankowske & Natalie MacLean, with special thanks to Brandon A. Dalmer, Andrew Frosst, and John Frosst

 

PHANTOM WING was open to the public from September 24 – 29, 2013, with 3,200 people visiting the exhibition. The project was sponsored by cSPACE King Edward, an organization transforming King Edward School into an arts incubator that officially opened in 2017.
