We are pleased to present Artists in Residence Show on Tuesday, September 17th at 6:30 pm! Two of our current residency artists, Chelsea and Kitt, in different backgrounds will individually share own work. The show will be followed by Q&A and discussion among the artists and the audience. The event is free with the donation gratefully accepted at the door.
Chelsea Farquhar is an Australian multidisciplinary artist working across drawing, sculpture, video and performance. Chelsea is half way through her 5 week residency at ALN. This work in progress uses geological and museological display methods to examine the archive as a site of temporary stasis, mystery and collective memory. I am drawn to the simultaneous categorisation and order of the archive as well the dis-order and overstimulation of information. My studio practice plays with the archive’s reliance on viewer recognition of inter-relational material links to build narratives.
Kitt Peacock is an interdisciplinary artist and printmaker from Vancouver, BC. Their work centers around interrupted cultural inhertiance—what we can make of imperfect traditions, and how we reconcile them.
Objects in Warning
Mass graves and urn burial. Objects of comfort become objects of warning as the Romani traditions that produced them change and fade. How do we find comfort in the wake of genocide? What tone does comfort take? When we find it, will we recognize the form it has taken?
