Experienced Nina Arsenault’s 40 Days, 40 Nights: Towards a Spiritual Experience performance installation tonight. She and I did The Artist is Present for quite some time. It was incredible.
The performance installation is intense, disturbing, captivating, and breathtaking. I am so inspired by her and her work, which continues to grow in emotional depth and quality.
Nina Arsenault is truly one of the most talented artists in Canada.
If you have the chance to see this performance installation, go see it! It’s on every night this week from 9 pm - 5 am at 1095 Queen St W, and it’s free.
