Silverfish Issue 002 focuses on the theme of transition, featuring texts by Anna Daliza and Irum, and artist projects by Saysah Yoroonatii and Lina Wu. The artists and writers featured in this issue explore transition as a way of moving through historical and personal grief; as a way to craft intergenerational and ancestral relationships; as bodily transformation. The poems, stories, dialogues, drawings, sculptures and performance documentation that fill the pages of this issue pull threads from different types of transformation and change, ranging from personal to communal to systemic, crafting a web of transition.

Silverfish is a publication and workshop program focused on cultivating ongoing dialogues between emerging contemporary artists and writers based in Tkaronto/Toronto. Silverfish publishes experimental and expansive approaches to art and writing through thematic assemblages of texts and artworks. We pair emerging artists and writers to reflect on pressing themes and critical discourses within contemporary art and culture. Silverfish fulfils a necessary niche, offering space for ongoing collaborations between emerging artists and writers that centre community building and skill sharing. We’re committed to providing a unique platform and paid opportunities for emerging artists and writers, particularly for those within the 2SLGBTQ+ and BIPOC communities.
