Our launching exhibition features Interdisciplinary Artist Valerie Carew.

Exhibition: LAND MIMICRY

Carew produces interdisciplinary art as a resistance to social and environmental severance using craft, performance, body based sculpture, installation and painting. Immersive role-play, biomimicry and textile deconstruction and re-use are strategies used to connect to land and identity. Using the body as a substrate for art making, Carew draws upon personal narratives as a means to connect to ecosystems in Canada.

Textile 

A take on folklore, domestic hooked rugs are re-crafted as wearable camouflage- imagined as immersive, practical tools to hide and roam the wild along the north Atlantic shores of Canada.

Painting

These paintings explore nostalgic relationships with land by combining elements of inside and outside spaces. Thrift store kitschy animal figurines and landscape embroideries are placed within Southern Ontario landscapes using oil paint, to imagine new dream-like worlds imbued with bits of memory.
