Not everyone is from Waterloo, ON so I wanted to share my exhibition at the Button Factory Arts in Waterloo, ON.
The exhibition is from January 17- February 1, 2020.
The group exhibition is called Friends & Lovers and is curated by Tee Kundu.
There is a variety of art forms including photographs, paintings and a community quilt project among others!
I have three works shown at the exhibition. The two smaller photographs are from my Patched series where I embed map paper into areas of the tree where the bark peels always. The larger photograph is titled Nestled and included twisted strips of map paper.
Here is the description of the exhibition:
If love is a feeling and care is an action, they are always engaged in conversation. As we navigate our lives, these conversations become increasingly important in shaping our stories. Drawing on personal lived experiences as archival knowledge of histories and possible futures, our identities are forged through our relationships with one another. Friends & Lovers explores the ways in which care, vulnerability & intimacy contribute to our sense of community. Who are you in love with? And how?
