Eleanor King is a Nova Scotian artist based in Brooklyn. She has presented solo exhibitions and created site-specific projects across Canada and the USA, including the Museum of Contemporary Canadian Art, Toronto, ON; Art Gallery of Nova Scotia, Halifax, NS; Southern Alberta Art Gallery, Lethbridge, AB; Nanaimo Art Gallery, Nanaimo, BC; Dunlop Art Gallery, Regina, SK; A.I.R. Gallery, Brooklyn, NY; and the Hudson Valley Center for Contemporary Art, Peekskill, NY.
King’s material strategies include sound, social practice, site-specific wall painting, and sculptural installation as a means to explore our relationship to the environment, technology, community, and futurity. In 2018, King created a new body of work at the Kamloops Art Gallery entitled Inverted Pyramids and Roads to Nowhere that included wall paintings, video and sound installation, sculptural intervention, and community performance.
This full-colour publication was produced in partnership with the Art Gallery of Nova Scotia following the Kamloops Art Gallery exhibition. Texts by Sarah Fillmore, Amy Fung and Charo Neville, and an interview between Eleanor King and Merray Gerges examine the invisible labour in King’s work, her calls to action, and the reverberations of sound and consciousness that are embedded in her work. A Foreword is by Margaret Chrumka. The first monograph devoted to King’s practice, this publication is an intimate scale and designed with the same attention to conservation and generosity of spirit that is evident in King’s work.
