Kegan McFadden is a Winnipeg-based artist, curator, and writer. His work, in exhibition and print form, often questions how memory functions in society.
By re-writing the opening sentence of Dickens' A Tale of Two Cities in the 204 various fonts available on my computer, my goal is to allude to the history of theft (plagiarism) in the art world and beyond, and also to point to the overuse / over quotation of certain authors works while simultaneously acknowledging the complete obliteration of work by others who are not quoted on a daily basis. The sentence, "It was the best of times, it was the worst of times..." acts as a synthesis for the creative process, but continues to carry weight and prescience for times of social, economic, and cultural struggle. In keeping with the overindulgence in this sentiment, the book is published in an open edition.
