don’t get lonely don’t get lost

Elisabeth Belliveau


This is the much anticipated follow-up to Belliveau’s collection of zines, the great hopeful someday. This time around the book features full colour artwork and a series of texts the artist has been working on at various residencies around the world (including England’s Lake District and Newfoundland’s Fogo Island). The texts effortlessly blend poetry and prose in stories about the dogs of feminist icons and finding and losing love. On the flipside of the book is packaged with the narration of Margaret’s Mountain, Belliveau’s longest animated work to date, and a DVD of three new animations which have screened at countless festivals. This book / DVD will be the size and shape of a DVD case to appeal to both the art book audience and the indie film audience.
