While artist in residence at Imago, D’Arcy revisited her performance piece Tuck, in which she composed individual lullabies and then sang them to the wildlife specimens at the Banff Park Museum National Historic Site. This performance was repeated at the Nova Scotia Museum of Natural History in Halifax, during Nocturne 2012. D’Arcy will be spending two weeks at Imago to put the lullabies to paper. This series of etchings were conceived and printed at Imago during her residency and depict the specimens alongside the musical scores and lyrics of the songs.
