Incidental Archive is a site-specific installation exhibition composed of numerous reconfigured elements. 'Nearby' utilizes photographs contributed by Sunshine Coast residents as a basis for a number of sculptural paper forms that reconfigure/reimagine the local landscape.
Gibsons Public Art Gallery is located at 431 Marine Drive in Gibsons, BC, a 40 minute ferry ride from Vancouver on the Sunshine Coast.
To broaden the discourse between disciplines, hcma's art residency program stimulates discussion and challenges preconceptions about architectural and design practice.
The invitation to an artist is to challenge, spark curiosity and help ask better questions about the world around us. www.HCMA.ca/tilt/artist-in-residence
I will be working with hcma's offices in Vancouver, Victoria and Edmonton to develop three interconnected site-specific works that reflect on what can unite and bring communities together.
Virtual Launch March 11, 2021
The Gallery invited submissions that redirect the eye away from the iconic photographic image toward new forms and representational culture. The aim is to assemble and display alternative representations that lead away from homogeneity toward an architecture and culture that claims no specific centre. The abolition of the centre, and its replacement with the void is a position in architecture and culture that redirects perception to the Periphery.
Precious Magazine is a bilingual platform for contemporary art and style. My installation COZY was selected for a Top 10 Award in their 2nd Biannual Art Exchange. Issue #82 features eco-friendly works and interviews with ten artists from around the world. www.precioushk.com
