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.
TOPOGRAPHIES OF CARE Art residency with hcma architecture + design
With day-to-day life so dramatically altered during the pandemic, and disconnection and isolation so prevalent, Vancouver-based interdisciplinary artist Shirley Wiebe was invited to explore the theme of connection, asking how community was nurtured despite extremely trying circumstances.
The resulting project, ‘Topographies of Care,’ is one-of-a-kind in its three-fold nature, situated at three different hcma office sites--Vancouver, Victoria, and Edmonton—where over twelve months Shirley developed a trio of related mural installations through her characteristic blend of printed images, paint, and pencil. Each installment explored an elemental material or force; in Vancouver, metal; in Victoria, water; in Edmonton, earth.
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.
