Beyond the Beyond,
an otherwhere—
grid of old-growth
+ graphite, shadowstrokes.
We fueled
the prairie-fire, our engine
for art in afterburn
toward burnout,
exhaust, exhausted, hot
to the touch.
O praise the workprocess,
+ stressful as a saint
or scorpion, + either way
the hand is open.

— Words from Kieron Walquist,
2022-2023 FAWC Writing Fellow

Georgia Dickie, Visual Arts Fellow
Georgia Dickie makes sculptural work out of found objects that she collects in her studio. Her process of reassembling these materials into new arrangements is based on a logic of eschewing and rebalancing their assigned functions. By staging these intricate assemblages, she not only reveals the inherent limitations of material value and meaning, but subverts the ways we are conditioned to see the world. Born in Toronto, Canada, Dickie earned her BFA from the Ontario College of Art and Design University in 2011. She was one of the recipients of the 2020 Sobey Art Award, the 2014 recipient of the Toronto Friends of the Visual Arts Artist Prize, and has received several visual arts grants from the Canada Council for the Arts, Ontario Arts Council, and Toronto Arts Council. Dickie has exhibited internationally and has held solo shows at Cooper Cole, Toronto; Oakville Galleries, Oakville, ON; Jeffrey Stark, NY; and Halsey McKay, NY. Dickie has been featured in Artforum, Frieze Magazine, Elle Canada, Canadian Art Magazine, among others. In February 2015, she was the Canada Council for the Arts artist in residence at Acme Studios in London, UK. Dickie currently lives and works in Toronto.

Tinja Ruusuvuori, Visual Arts Fellow
Tinja Ruusuvuori is a multidisciplinary artist and filmmaker with a focus on subjective and creative documentary-making. She is interested in choosing charged objects, images, and gestures that are obeying some mysterious order – and cultivating rather than eradicating that sense of mystery. Through her careful investigation of everyday phenomena, it emerges that these stand as metaphors for wider questions about how and why we live together. With tenderness and humor, she seeks in her work to question a forward trajectory and encourages us to believe in the utopia of now. Ruusuvuori holds a fine art MA from the Glasgow School of Art and a BA in documentary film from Aalto University, Helsinki. She has participated in residencies at the Cité International des Arts Paris and at Hospitalfield, Scotland, while her work has been shown at international film festivals, including Visions du Réel, Toronto Hot Docs, London Short Film Festival, and Camden International Film Festival. In 2019, Ruusuvuori received the Uusi Aalto Award for new talent in Finnish cinema.
