Shannon Bool

Walk like an Etruscan


Walk like an Etruscan is an artist book published in 2013 on occasion of Shannon Bool’s exhibition at Daniel Faria Gallery in Toronto.

Michelangelo’s Place (2013), Bool’s bench sculpture, was installed outside the Contemporary Art Gallery from May 1 – June 28, 2015. This publication features an essay in English and German by Jonathan Shaughessy, an excerpt from D.H. Lawrence’s Etruscan Places (1932), a conversation between Shannon Bool and Alberto Bonalevi in Florence in both English and Italian, along with plenty of stunning images of Bool’s work.

Bool’s body of work shown in this publication consists of a combination of sculpture, painting and video developed over the course of her artist residency at the Villa Romana in Florence, Italy. She is interested in visual codes linked to ancient civilizations, art history, pop culture, and their shifting meaning.
