Kasia Sosnowski: SNEEK-E-PEEP’N

August 17, 2020 - January 31, 2021

Project Space

By turns playful, melancholic, and surreal, Kasia Sosnowski’s ceramic sculptures visually articulate the bodily experience of emotion — unease, anticipation, euphoria. In her new installation, “SNEEK-E-PEEP’N,” Sosnowski evokes the simultaneous anxiety and frisson of an accidental or uninvited glimpse into a neighbouring window. Her ceramic forms reside behind street-front windows, shrouded gently by a hand-drawn grid. Glimpsed through partially-obscured windows, Sosnowski’s ceramics exist in their own self-contained universe, connected by bonds that we can only intuit from a distance. The exhibition Kasia Sosnowski’s “SNEEK-E-PEEP’N” features new work made during Sosnowski’s recent Winter 2020 residency at Medalta.

Kablusiak: Qiniqtuaq

July 29 - October 20, 2019

Project Space

‘Qiniqtuaq’ (searching/looking) invites viewers to peer through a multi-eyed ghost sheet to witness a looping projection of a video collage screened in front of a piece of oil-stained cardboard. ‘Qiniqtuaq’ is meant to evoke a dream-like state imaging a hypothetical place and time; a representation of what is felt but not known. ‘Qiniqtuaq’ invites a presence of nostalgia, spectatorship, and diaspora.

Kablusiak is an Inuvialuk artist and curator based in Mohkinstsis and holds a BFA in Drawing from the Alberta University of the Arts, Calgary. They use art and humour as a coping mechanism to address cultural displacement. The lighthearted nature of their practice extends gestures of empathy and solidarity; these interests invite a reconsideration of the perceptions of contemporary Indigeneity.
