Ray Fenwick is an interdisciplinary artist working with performance, video, sound and typography. His work is an often playful attempt to explore unusual relationships with language, voice, and communication. He has an undergraduate degree from NSCAD and an MFA Degree from the University of Manitoba. He has participated in residencies at Struts Gallery (NB), Plug-In ICA (MB), and Owens Art Gallery (NB). He has exhibited, performed, and screened work in both Canada and the U.S., and he has spoken about his work at galleries, conferences and universities in both countries. He has received grants from the Canada Council, Manitoba Arts Council, Winnipeg Arts Council and Nova Scotia Culture and Heritage.
His performance work lies somewhere between experimental comedy and sound art, and has been performed at many venues including Galerie Sans Nom (NB), Grenfell Art Gallery (NFLD), Southern Alberta Art Gallery (AB), Truck Gallery (AB) and Plug-In ICA (MB). He has also performed this work in bars and at music festivals.
His band Pastoralia is an art, performance and music hybrid that acts as a meeting point between the practices of Fenwick and Halifax artist Mitchell Wiebe. Pastoralia has performed at various venues, including the opening of Mass MoCA’s Oh Canada exhibition, Halifax’s Nocturne festival and at the recent Saltbox performance festival in Newfoundland.
