Canadian Time: Rijksakademie Collaboration and Performance with Farmer Mu

In June 2006 Kirouac travelled to the Amsterdam Netherlands for her interview at the Rijksakademie residency program. During the excruciating wait for the results, Kirouac and Southern Chinese artist in residence Farmer Mu, collaborated on a performance piece in the Rijksakademie Gallery. Kirouac recorded her private thoughts spanning the spectrum of doubt to agitation to excitement and back, in hot pink paint on the wall, while Farmer Mu paced back and forth in front of the camera videotaping them, jingling a set of multiple keys. Kirouac continued to layer words that translated her emotions, moment to moment over the same wall space. She continued until the results came to her several hours later, leaving only a solid dripping shape as her final mark.
