From September 24 – 29, 2013, you’re invited to explore a section of one of Calgary’s oldest schools, transformed by 30+ artists and performers prior to demolition. Through a series of large-scale artworks, PHANTOM WING re-imagines the soon to be demolished 1960s wing of the historic King Edward School before it’s redeveloped as a multidisciplinary arts hub (cSPACE). A community of artists and performers have taken up temporary residence within the abandoned wing, creating infestations, psychedelic portals, fire-bell installations, Girl Gang Dance Parties, simple robots, intercom performances, water sculptures, politergeists, pre-apocalyptic beasts, and more! The resulting exhibition will be both an echo and a bang: a reflection and a mirage. In essence, PHANTOM WING proposes the creation of an architectural phantom limb – an event designed to resonate long after the building is severed from its adjoining sandstone counterpart.
