The exhibition will present selected dioramas from my children’s books trilogy: You Are Stardust, Wild Ideas – Let Nature Inspire Your Thinking, and You Are Never Alone. All these books focus on the message of how we are all connected to the natural world. Specializing in fine sketching and painting techniques, I carefully arranged the painted and texturized paper cutouts to create three-dimensional dioramas. Each diorama contains two to three spreads from the books, yet all of these different scenes come together as one body of artwork.
Sheridan College’s Illustration Program students, working in 16 small groups in their 3rd Year Illustrative Painting Explorations course, curated and developed the exhibition themes and artwork for this collection of small group exhibitions.
Exhibition closes at 2pm on March 30
Curated by Neven Lochhead and presented in partnership with SAW Video Media Art Centre, Ottawa. Featuring work by naakita feldman-kiss, Ivanie Aubin-Malo, Henry Andersen, Mara Eagle, Phil Rose, Molly Teitelbaum, Anna Queen,and The Video in the Public Sphere Working Group.
In partnership with SAW Video Media Art Centre (Ottawa), Critical Distance is pleased to present Public Syntax, an exhibition that highlights the distinct time-based practices and approaches of seven artists, as well as those participating in the Video in the Public Sphere Working Group, the majority of whom are either Ottawa-based or connected. Situated in-gallery at Critical Distance and across multiple public spaces at Artscape Youngplace, the works in the exhibition embody and expand upon the recent and ongoing programming initiatives of SAW Video and their Knot Project Space, launched in early 2018.
Responding to Critical Distance’s mandate to advance curatorial inquiry and encourage collaborative frameworks, exhibition curator Neven Lochhead employs a conversational mode to form ‘syntactical’ relations between these various practices, identifying collective editing processes where the ‘sequence’ becomes a vector on which to group together. In the gallery and public spaces, artists in this exhibition generate affinities not through the question of where will we meet, but rather when will we occur?
