A bit about Charvel and Merle
- Charvel Rappos is an interdisciplinary artist, facilitator, and community organizer living and working in K'jipuktuk/Halifax. Charvel’s work is centred in a creative exploration of the everyday as a force against banality. Her work pairs instance with exploration in order to understand social and personal states, how they move, and how they remain. Process-based, her work is often used as an informal tool to produce and manage contradictions of these states; absorbent, she strives to uncover new and lost approaches to doing so.
- Merle Harley works slowly, makes soft things and lives in the swamp befriending snakes. A chaos creature with too many projects and no fixed medium. Currently they are zoning into building an interactive quilt for The Art Bikers program and drawing comics
