I will be performing this Friday and Saturday at PICA’s TBA festival. Very excited to be a part of this lineup. Details here.
PERFORMANCE PREMIERE – AUGUST 22 – GLENFIDDICH DISTILLERY
I pieced together a few scenes of documentation from my show at the Art Gallery of Greater Victoria (closed last April). Here I am demonstrating how the viewer decides which famous cinematic mirror is projected into the shattered mirror and which body is projected into the pool of blood. My laundry is projected into the baroque drapery. You can see that here.
You can also see documentation of the same piece at the MASS MOCA.
A scene from Every Time I See Your Picture I Cry is here.
Documentation of Learning to Breath Under water is here.
My new performance, The Thief of Mirrors, (from which the installation was abstracted) will be presented at PICA’s TBA festival in September. Details here.
DANIEL IN OSLO
I will be performing this Thursday (May 23) in Oslo. Please tell all your Norwegian friends! Details here.

ARTIST IN RESIDENCE AT THE GLENFIDDICH DISTILLERY
Hey everyone, By now some of you may have heard I will be in Scotland all summer. I’m really looking forward to this. Accordingly, I will be renting my Montreal place – 1000 sq. foot, 5 and a half (2 bedroom) apartment for the months of June, July and August. I live right downtown on a very quiet street in the gay village. I’m on 3 different subway lines. I’ll post images soon (I hope) but message me privately if you may be interested or curious.
THIEF OF MIRRORS
Happy New Year everyone! I’m in the process of updating my website, so a new site is around the corner, and with it, a renewed sense of responsibility and diligence. I haven’t been updated in years so it kind of feels like I have a second apartment that I never use, never clean, and forget is open to the public. Apologies to people who check my site hoping to learn what I’m up to. I have a series of exhibitions/performances coming up in British Columbia this month. I will be installing at the Art Gallery of Greater Victoria soon. The show is a group show called Traces, featuring my work alongside the wonderful Ed Pien and Alison Norlen. The opening is January 18th. Details here. I will then begin a series of performances in Victoria at Intrepid Theatre’s Winter Lab. Details here. I will then proceed to the PUSH festival where I will be performing for the third year in a row. I will be presenting Winnipeg Babysitter on January 26th. Details here.
DANIEL AT NUIT BLANCHE
I’ll be presenting a new performance in the 8 facade windows of the Drake Hotel (Toronto) tonight. I’ve employed 8 performance assistants for this. It’s a pretty ambitious and totally insane 25 minute narrative titled, “Staring into Broken Light Bulbs”. Simultaneously, the public opening of the Winnipeg Now exhibition at the Winnipeg Art Gallery will take place. This is also a Nuit Blanche event. Both events will run all night, or until I completely dissolve into a puddle of fatigue. Toronto details here. And Winnipeg details here.
I performed last week at International House in Philadelphia. This has become a kind of annual gig and I really love it. Special thanks again to Herbie, Robert, Jesse and Jesse for bringing me back again. This Saturday, September the 22 I will be presenting WINNIPEG BABYSITTER at Plug In ICA in Winnipeg. This is presented in conjunction with MY WINNIPEG PROJECT. Details here. Then at the WAG, a few nights later, I will present my latest “registered projection”, The Thief of Mirrors, along with a new series of pastel drawings. Details here. On the same night (September 29), I will present my brand new performance, “Staring into Broken Light Bulbs”, in Toronto. This is a 30-minute, 9-channel projection piece on the facade of the Drake hotel. It’s my homage to Hitchcock’s Rear Window. Details here.
