Esther Birney lecture: Pnina Granirer – “Garden of Words”

An acclaimed visual artist for over 60 years, Pnina Granirer has also written poetry all her life. In this collection, she offers personal reflections that are at once joyous, sharp and heartbreaking. The sculpted stones in the Gulf Islands, the joy of watching dancers’ bodies in movement, the shadow of a new plague—each vivid vignette expresses Granirer’s wish “to plant a garden of words in [her] field of colours.” 

Pnina Granirer
was born in Romania and lived in Israel, the US and France before coming to Canada in 1965, where she developed a career as a visual artist, showing locally, nationally and internationally. An extensive archive on her work and life can be found in the collection of the British Columbia Artists’ Archive at the University of Victoria, BC. The Trials of Eve, a limited-edition, award-winning book including drawings and poems was published in 1989. PNINA GRANIRER; Portrait of an Artist by Ted Lindberg was published in 1998 on the occasion of her 40thRetrospective Exhibition at the Richmond Art Gallery. Her memoir Light Within the Shadows appeared in 2017.
