Will Gill: Cape Spear

An online supplement to the Fall 2010 print edition of Canadian Art



In the fall 2010 print edition of Canadian Art, the novelist and 2010 Man Booker Prize longlist nominee Lisa Moore profiles the multidisciplinary projects of St. John’s–based artist Will Gill. Working in painting, sculpture, photography and video, Gill’s practice is characterized by an absurdist humour that combines do-it-yourself craftsmanship with raw elements such as wood, fire and water. Now, this special online video offers a sneak peek of Cape Spear, Gill’s most recent site-specific project on the easternmost point of the North American continent.
