Independent -- Daylight Savings Society
The Daylight Savings Society is an artist collective based in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Treaty 1 Territory on Turtle Island (so-called Canada) est. 2023. We are a collection of artists who met through our studies at the School of Art at the University of Manitoba. The collective comprises artists Skye Callow, Scotland Cook, Carlos Cruz, Zoë LeBrun, Kacper Stein, and Morgan Traa. We are of diverse cultural and economic backgrounds, and of intersecting identities. We came together to find a community where we can interrogate the crossing of mediums and to challenge what it means to work interdisciplinarily (whatever that even means in the contemporary moment). We are connected through a shared need to push the mode of artistic creation. This coming together has empowered each of us to create independently and collaboratively, and freely. We are collectively interested in the following (and not limited to): What it means to make work in a postcapitalist society, the ephemeral and entropic degradation, the struggle of trying to live in a connected way in an individualistically oriented world, the nuances of the human experience, and the potentialities of technology and art making in connection to ecology and the coming future. We are interested in creating an artistic community that is not gate-kept and that is open, a place where we can experiment with new and old technologies and processes, and a place to interrogate contemporary artistic and social theory and criticism. We’re happy to be here.
We just want to save a little daylight.
