99% Darkness


99% Darkness is a compilation of recent collaborative paintings and drawings, featuring the night sky. Short scattered texts take inspiration from the cold vast emptiness of space, with applied human longings and hopes. Michael Dumontier and Neil Farber are founding members of the Royal Art Lodge. Since the dissolution of the influential Winnipeg art collective, Dumontier and Farber continue to work and create art together. 

Jackson and I have admired Benjamin's work since we were studying as students. Their catalogue is huge, and always growing; they’ve made books and zines with some of our favourite artists and collaborators, from Himaa and Ken Kagami to Andreas Samuelsson. There’s a sensitivity to the way they put publications together that makes each one a pleasure to spend time with.
