Esker Foundation is proud to present the solo exhibition Divine of Form, Formed in the Divine (Medicine for a Nightmare) by Toronto-based artist Nep Sidhu. Opening reception: Friday 27 September, 6-10pm, all welcome. Divine of Form, Formed in the Divine (Medicine for a Nightmare) examines how memories persist in the present, especially when related to personal and collective practices of resistance, resilience, and ritual. This mid-career survey is anchored by recent works that reflect upon Sikh histories, amongst other collectively formed and formative histories considered through collaborations with Maikoiyo Alley-Barnes and Nicholas Galanin, exploring how memorialization practices can transfigure grief and loss, and how they contribute to a writing of histories that speak back to power by celebrating cultural knowledge and practices.
