PHANTOM WING: a pre-demolition project at King Edward School

Remember when they did Wreck City? Well, this is some what along the same lines.

Explore the abandoned wing of Calgary’s fourth oldest school, re-imagined by 30+ Artists prior to demolition. Through a series of large-scale artworks, PHANTOM WING explores the soon to be demolished 1960s wing of the historic King Edward School, before it's redeveloped as a multidisciplinary arts hub (cSPACE). A community artists and performers have taken up temporary residence within the abandoned wing, creating infestations, fire-bell installations, psychedelic portals, Girl Gang Dance Parties, intercom performances, water-features, poltergeists, and more. The resulting exhibition will be both an echo and a bang: a reflection and a mirage. In essence, PHANTOM WING proposes the creation of a phantom limb – an event designed to resonate long after the building is severed from its adjoining sandstone counterpart.
