Jimmie Kilpatrick: SONGS FOR DAFOE ROAD

About the exhibition

Jimmie Kilpatrick says he wants to be a better listener. In his studio, he has been making kinetic sound sculptures which both hear and make sound. Some of them hear the sound that they make, others make the sound that they hear. Some of them do both. These sculptures foreground the reciprocal relationship between speaking and listening. Jimmie says, “Listening is giving. Listening is not easy. I want to be a better listener.”

Jimmie Kilpatrick is a musician and interdisciplinary artist based in Brandon, Manitoba. He’s been touring regularly and releasing records on Toronto’s You’ve Changed Records since 2009. He has appeared on recordings by John K. Samson, Christine Fellows, Joel Plaskett and By Divine Right. Kilpatrick holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from Brandon University and is currently a Master of Fine Art candidate at the University of Manitoba. In 2018, he was the Manitoba winner of the BMO 1stART! competition. Presently, he is working with kinetic sound sculpture to explore overlap between visual art and music/sound.
