Jeremy Pavka and Sean Procyk — knock on wood

6 October — 18 November, 2017

This collaborative exhibition by Jeremy Pavka and Sean Procyk uses sound, video, and sculpture to examine human processes of disturbance on the land. More specifically the installation considers the role that fear has played in shaping settler practices of interacting with the natural environment. Our relationship to land waivers from a resource for exploitation to an object of possession, or a matter of inquiry for preservation, comfort, and enjoyment. Through this series of multi-sensory works Sean and Jeremy explore the inconsistencies in the perception of 'land' in capital-driven North American cultures.”

Exhibition opening is October 6 at 7pm.
Sean and Jeremy will be giving an artist talk on October 7 at 2pm.

Violet Costello — Getting Big

6 October — 18 November

Calgary artist Violet Costello’s toddlers, created from paper composite, stand precariously balanced on stools, everyday objects perched on their heads. In her paintings, she reinterprets her own works in humorous compositions with a sense of strangeness and of being out-of-place. Her installation locates nostalgias, beliefs, and desires in these surreal children, cartoon figures, animals, and objects, in absurd, dreamlike worlds.

Exhibition opening reception is October 6, 7-10pm, free to Latitude members and guests.

Artist talk and tour of the exhibition with Violet Costello is October 7, 1pm.
