Library Shelf Location 18.FAST
Publication Date 2010
Description Exhibition monograph for DONKY@NINJA@WITCH, an exhibition by FASTWÜRMS that was held the fall of 2007 at the AGYU. Beautifully designed by Lisa Kiss, the catalogue includes essays on the work of FASTWÜRMS by Emelie Chhangur, Sally McKay, and Jon Davies, an introduction by Philip Monk, and a love letter from Andrew Harwood. Copiously illustrated, this hardcover book covers the inception of the work, the creation of the exhibition, and the implications of the FASTWÜRMS corpus for good measure. DONKY@NINJA@WITCH (26 September – 9 December 2007, Art Gallery of York University) was an event in Canadian art history: a living retrospective of ten years of FASTWÜRMS’ influential Queen Street Toronto storefront exhibitions. At the AGYU, Witch and Queer cultures were conflated in an extravagant re-staging of House of Bangs, Blood & Swash, Pirate Head, Gusset Nation, and Blood Clock, re-mixed with new work thrown in for good measure.
