About the Artists
Formed in 1979 by Kim Kozzi and Dai Skuse, FASTWÜRMS is the trademark and joint authorship of these Toronto/Creemore - based multidisciplinary artists whose artwork melds high and popular cultures, bent identity politics, social exchange and a Witch positive DIY cinematic sensibility.
FASTWÜRMS has exhibited and created public commissions and installations, performance, video and film projects, across Canada and in the United States, Europe, Korea, and Japan.
Exhibitions include 'Anacowda- happy to feed the world', for Rococo Tattoo at the Power Plant, 'Superstition' at Gallery TPW, 'Red of Tooth and Kaw' at the Mendel Art Gallery, Toronto, and 'BLOOD & SWASH 3' at Parlour Projects, Brooklyn, N.Y., 27th Bienale de Sao Paulo, and 'Donky@Ninja@Witch' at the Art Gallery of York University, North York, the Contemporary Art Galley, Vancouver, and Plug In ICI, Winnipeg. They recently performed 'Krummi Krunkar: Tarot+Tattoo' in Reykjavik as part of the SEQUENCES Festival.
FASTWÜRMS' cultural politics are complex and strategically subversive, their critical aesthetics relational and inclusive with a bent towards working class, craft collaborations, and queer alliance.
