    WHEN: June 18 – August 16, 2019

    WHERE: Marion Nicoll Gallery (MNG), Main Space

    Drawing on gospels, hymns, dancing, ideas of worship Eyre and Coates removes the boundary between religion and queerness while situating the commonalities of these two groups as humorous and transcendent. The church has never existed as a pure entity and has always pertained elements of corruption, but it is not our goal to alienate, as it is to revitalize a culture of a communal understanding of radical love, acceptance and understanding. Eyre and Coates particular form of worship is radical sex, indulgence, sweat-inducing dancing, validation in perverted thoughts and disco music. For this project, we plan to use the iconography of the white pony to signify inaccessibility and myth drawing reference to queer dance culture, Christianity, mysticism, and transcendent states to shatter the barrier of queerness and organized religion. Our intention is to realize a white pony in a life-size sculptural form, using fabric to best suspend viewers disbelief of what they are seeing.26

    Skylar Eyre and Gabby Coates are interdisciplinary artists based on Treaty 7 Territory in the Southern Alberta region. Their collaborative practice focuses on queering their surroundings, drawing on the iconography of the religious institution + collapsing the boundaries between the church and dance culture – particularly the gay male disco circuit that gained rapid-fire popularization and faced imminent death in the early 1980s.

    Presented in partnership with Sled Island Music & Arts Festival.

    WHERE: Marion Nicoll Gallery (MNG), Main Space

    Drawing on gospels, hymns, dancing, ideas of worship Eyre and Coates removes the boundary between religion and queerness while situating the commonalities of these two groups as humorous and transcendent. The church has never existed as a pure entity and has always pertained elements of corruption, but it is not our goal to alienate, as it is to revitalize a culture of a communal understanding of radical love, acceptance and understanding. Eyre and Coates particular form of worship is radical sex, indulgence, sweat-inducing dancing, validation in perverted thoughts and disco music. For this project, we plan to use the iconography of the white pony to signify inaccessibility and myth drawing reference to queer dance culture, Christianity, mysticism, and transcendent states to shatter the barrier of queerness and organized religion. Our intention is to realize a white pony in a life-size sculptural form, using fabric to best suspend viewers disbelief of what they are seeing.26

    Skylar Eyre and Gabby Coates are interdisciplinary artists based on Treaty 7 Territory in the Southern Alberta region. Their collaborative practice focuses on queering their surroundings, drawing on the iconography of the religious institution + collapsing the boundaries between the church and dance culture – particularly the gay male disco circuit that gained rapid-fire popularization and faced imminent death in the early 1980s.
