Dear www | Online Group Show from glór in association with PAVED Arts, Canada Date/Time
Date(s) - 01/11/2021 - 31/01/2022




“Dear www,” brings together Irish artists based in the West, and Canadian artists based in Treaty 6 Territories – Saskatchewan, to pay tribute to digital art projects from the 20th century. Each Irish-Canadian pair created an artistic response to a historical digital art project, from a 2021 point of view.

glór has joined forces with PAVED Arts in Saskatoon to co-present each digital project. PAVED Arts is a non-profit, community-based organization that exists to advance knowledge and practices in what they call the ‘PAVED Arts’ arts: photography, audio, video, electronic and digital. PAVED Arts helps artists and independent producers to make and exhibit their work.


ShadowBreath by Martina Hynan & Monique Blom

Char Davies germinal work, Osmose (1995) relied on participants’ breath to direct and guide this immersive VR experience. Martina Hynan & Monique Blom’s ShadowBreath is a response work which explores how breath is created when being “with our environment” rather than simply being “in our environment”.

A shadow-spirit-self is conjured in the piece to probe the entwinement of our breath with the landscape and engage with the breath of the landscape.

There Was and There Was Not by Linda Duvall & Avi Ratnayake:

This project confronts and vanquishes the power of the omnipresent video conferencing platforms. Linda Duvall & Avi Ratnayake’s www adventure sends users on a search through a network of connections by engaging with stories, sound and visual, and playing games.
The artists invite you to join them on the web as they traipse around informed failure/digital inertia.

Re-Visioning the Screen by Dr. Martina Cleary & Janelle Pewapsconias, launching in January

In Re-Visioning the Screen, visual artist Martina Cleary and spoken word poet Janelle Pewapsconias explore memories and relationality between sites of settler colonial and the legacy of postcolonial systems of institutionalisation. The project seeks to find ways of navigating cultural relationality across time and space.


“Dear www,” was curated by Moran Been-noon, as part of her curatorial residency with glór. For full details on the project and everyone involved, please visit glór’s website or
