Chris Curreri: Thick Skull, Thin Skin

January 23 - June 26, 2021

Check back for opening dates.

Chris Curreri’s works complicate and dissolve seemingly dichotomous states of tenderness and violence; abjection and beauty; seduction and revulsion; self and other. They suggest an unravelling of the hermetic borders that have been constructed between us, others, and things in the world.

This exhibition brings together sculptural and photographic bodies of work that form and frame a sense of porousness and consider the tension between moments where things become fixed and the possibility of continuous, nearly imperceptible shifts—the suggestion that bodies and matter can and do exist within a continuum of potentialities.

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.
