How do we respond to a global crisis of our own making? In GIVE UP AND PARTY, Morgan Wedderspoon brings together found objects and borrowed text to inquire into the relationship between the human subject and the changing climate in a time of anthropogenic global warming. Drawing from a list of eight responses to crisis from Margaret Atwood’s Payback: Debt and the Shadow Side of Wealth, Wedderspoon uses chance operations and assemblage to create a suite of prints and a bookwork of collage poetry. This project is supported by the Edmonton Arts Council and the City of Edmonton.
