Dear Peggy: New Winnipeg Folklore | A limited edition artist book and cassette tape
Why do Winnipeggers always flick two pennies into the water when crossing the Redwood Bridge? Ever heard of the Gimli Ice Dances? On which of the city's rivers might the buttons on your jacket pop off unexpectedly? Over the last three years, hannah_g has created folklore in response to some of the places, people, and objects she has happened upon in Winnipeg. Melancholy, absurd, credible, and wry: the stories reflect the character of a city she has come to love despite herself.
This project was generously supported by the Manitoba Arts Council.
hannah_g is a writer, artist and performer based in Winnipeg, MB. Much of her practice revolves around intervening in public space to investigate everyday enchantment. She uses postering, stickering, soundscapes and storytelling to this end.
