In this time of radical separation where so many are working, learning, teaching, and surviving from home, Caitlind & Wayne share the domestic aspects of their art practice, from large-scale installations in pre-demolition houses, to public sculptures reimagining household objects, to collective experiments in their own back yard.
Caitlind r.c. Brown & Wayne Garrett are Calgary based artists exploring the interspace between seemingly polarized entities: light + dark, nature + culture, DIY + institutional, individual + collective. Caitlind graduated from Alberta University of the Arts in 2010, co-founding WRECK CITY curatorial collective in 2013. Wayne trained as a machinist at Southern Alberta Institute of Technology, working in the Yukon Territory before returning to Calgary to pursue a music diploma at Mount Royal University. After meeting at a suburban arts collective, the duo began collaborating, slowly developing a national and international arts practice, primarily centered in public space. Whether working in galleries, pre-demolition buildings, public parks, or their own back yard, Caitlind & Wayne instigate diverse projects that endeavor to transform the everyday through a critical shift in perspective.
