“I always say that performance is my chance to be social…”
The Canadian artist Megan Rooney (b. 1986) is an enigmatic storyteller whose work spans painting, performance, written and spoken word, sculpture, and installations. In mostly site-specific arrangements, she combines the individual components into large-scale installations.
Fire on the Mountain is the artist’s first monograph, published on the occasion of her major solo exhibition at the Kunsthalle Düsseldorf (18 May – 11 August 2019), curated by Anna Lena Seiser.
