Have you met…Eleanor King?
An introduction can be a wonderful thing. You can meet interesting people, and make new friends. You can be introduced to your new favorite foods, books, music, or artist.
I’d like to introduce you to some of my favorite artists. Some of whom I’ve been familiar with for years, and other I’ve only recently been introduced to.
The artist I’d like to introduce is Eleanor King, and she was suggested to me by Becka Viau.
Eleanor King presents installations and performances nationally and internationally, most notably at Nuit Blanche (TO), Art Gallery of Nova Scotia, Eastern Edge Gallery (NL) and Galleri F15 in Norway. She received a BFA from NSCAD in 2001, and participated in residencies at The Banff Centre, Atlantic Centre for the Arts (FL), New Adventures in Sound Art (TO), and the Centre for Art Tapes (NS). Inspired by everyday life, Eleanor’s work employs interdisciplinary strategies to create site-specific installations using provisional materials and improvisational methods. Her musical history includes bands The Got to Get Got, The Just Barelys and newly formed all-girl outfit Wet Denim. She teaches media arts at NSCAD University and is Director at Anna Leonowens Gallery in Halifax, Nova Scotia.
