THE new book release
by phyllis kirk!
Sênsënōmàké Circus: A Collaboration in Mixed-Media chronicles a three-year creative journey completed by visual artists Phyllis Kirk and Bronna Fenichel from 1987 to 1990. A true collaboration in every sense of the word from concept to execution, the Sênsënōmàké Circus satirizes western values using the circus as a metaphor, with black and white performance artists juxtaposed on layers of brilliantly-coloured mixed-media backgrounds. The unbounded energy of the circus-based alternative worlds explode past the confines of the canvas, and the addition of unusual materials and text further heightens the satirical expression.
