April 23: Performance Art with knitted Creatures. An Interview with Lin Hood
Lin felts little critters out of wool, and found things. They live around her house, and come out to play during performances. Lin composes fantastical, hilarious, dreamlike, and emotionally durable performance pieces. They blow me away.
In this interview, Lin talks about how artschool (NSCAD) led her away from using fabrics and fibres, and how friendships, and interesting people in her life led her back once she was done. She talks about her love of children's books, and their use in her process, and what she would do if she ran her own performance art workshop series.
Lin was a joy to interview... all the way in her beautiful apartment in Halifax.
