    Lifelines, water bodies: Kelly Zantingh

    Lifelines, water bodies, is a photo-based exhibition exploring the body entangled within landscapes and the suggestion of land forms created by bodies in flux. In the photographs, human bodies wrap around, tuck into, and hide within crevices, rocks, caves, trees, and each other. Often faceless, lacking a specific identity, their flesh becomes abstracted as they meld into and become an integrated part of the landscape. In other images, there may not be a landscape in sight, and the bodies instead mimic the malleability and transitional quality of an ever-changing environment. The human body becomes less of a portrait of an individual and instead becomes a stand-in for the vulnerability we collectively share as earth-dwellers living on a damaged, yet adaptable planet. ------- Kelly Zantingh (she/her) graduated with a B.A.H in Studio Art from the University of Guelph, ON in April 2016.

    erasure: Samantha Dickie

    In my ceramic art practise, I use abstraction, minimalism and multiplicity to create large-scale sculptures, and multi-component installations. This exhibition draws on research in anti-colonial, anti-capitalist feminist scholarship for creative inquiry about Erasure: the act of causing a feeling, memory, or period of time to be completely forgotten. In this project, I use abstraction to contemplate and unsettle the nature of erasure, both personally and societally: the impact of historical and current omission, eradication, deletion, devaluation, obliteration; and the collective responsibility to remember, to learn, to assert. The installations in the exhibition are interactive, inviting the viewer to move components; to walk around, under and through; to sit, wonder, respond, and co-create. read more...
