The Post-Amen Project
The posthumous exhibition of The Distortion of Light by Shannon Jamieson (1982-2006)
Fiona Annis & Jamie Fergeson, 2007
Exhibited at Art en Majescule in Montréal, Quebec
Shannon Jamieson was an emerging Montreal-based visual artist. Her last complete body of work, The Distortion of Light, was created during a residency in Lyon, France. At this time Jamieson worked extensively at the site of L’Église du Bon Pasteur, a disaffected 18th century church. Shortly after completing this body of work, Jamieson committed suicide. One year later, Fiona Annis and Jamie Ferguson mounted a posthumous exhibition, entitled The Post-Amen Project, which exhibited The Distortion of Light, as well as surrounding documentation such as the artist’s selected correspondences, sketch book entries, and suicide note.
