DRUNK is a new show of images and words both moving and still, spoken and painted by Maegan Hill-Carroll. Sculptural and painted interventions onto photographic surfaces combine with alterations made to previously glossy frames that are sanded down and repainted by hand. DRUNK examines a life lived and avoided through the compulsive collecting of pictures. The intoxicating stuff that makes up a life in avoiding its death. Images of attempting comfort, of bodily residue, of the liminal space of the dew ghosts at the bus stop, of objects collected from the dead.

Maegan Hill-Carroll is an artist and writer living and working in Vancouver, Canada on the unceded, ancestral and occupied lands of the Musqueam, Tsleil-Wautith and Squamish Nations. She holds an MFA from UCLA and a BFA from the University of Manitoba in Winnipeg, where she grew up building houses. Her work is represented by Wil Aballe Art Projects (WAAP) in unceded Vancouver and has been exhibited in Los Angeles, Mexico City and across Canada. Her writing has been published in Fillip and elsewhere. She is currently working on book called “Green Puce.”
