Aislinn Thomas is an interdisciplinary artist whose practice includes video, performance, sculpture, installation, and text. She culls material from everyday experiences and relationships, creating work that ranges from poignant to absurd (and at times straddles both). Her recent works explore the generative potential of disability while pushing up against conventional standards of access.
Recent exhibitions include Draft Systems WRO Media Arts Biennial in Wroclaw, Poland; TALK BACK at Flux Factory in Queens, New York; and A distinct aggregation / A dynamic equivalent / A generous ethic of invention: Six writers respond to six sculptures commissioned by the Walter Phillips Gallery at the Banff Centre for Arts and Creativity in Banff, AB. Aislinn currently lives and works near the Grand River in Ontario, Canada.
Flourishing features the work of seven artists from across Canada whose work addresses the complexities of what it means to flourish, and how flourishing exists in harmony with, and in juxtaposition to, suffering.
