DESCRIPTION

Walter Scott is an interdisciplinary artist working with writing, illustration, performance and sculpture. In 2011 while living in Montreal, he began a comic book series, Wendy, exploring the narrative of a fictional young woman living in an urban centre who aspires to global success and art stardom but whose dreams are perpetually derailed. The position of the outsider and shape-shifter is central to this body of work, as is the influence of feminist icons such as Elle Woods in Legally Blonde and artist, punk poet, experimental novelist and filmmaker Kathy Acker.

Scott is AGO’s Artist-in-Residence from September 1 – November 30, 2016. This exhibition, presented as part of his residency, features three original drawings from his Wendy series, connected by a short narrative written by the artist.
