Documentation of the abandoned wing of Calgary’s fourth oldest school, King Edward, as re-imagined by 30+ Artists prior to demolition.
Through a series of large-scale artworks, PHANTOM WING explores the soon to be demolished 1960s wing of the historic school, before it's redeveloped as a multidisciplinary arts hub (cSPACE). A community of artists and performers have taken up temporary residence within the abandoned wing, creating infestations, fire-bell installations, psychedelic portals, Girl Gang Dance Parties, intercom performances, water-features, poltergeists, and more.
