Toon’s Kitchen XI featuring Allysha Larsen
Opens November 8th @ 8pm.
The multi-channel video School of Athens was shot in Saskatchewan in 2013. Dramatic figures populate rural landscapes, seemingly incongruent with each other and their surroundings. Characters act out a surreal morality play full of charged allegory. Central to the piece are two sets of contrasted characters: demure and virginal Greek nymphs, and their Orientalist shadow selves—looming veiled women who are at once gothic and sci-fi. Keeping an eye on the women are mysterious men, robed in history and power.
Allysha Larsen’s multi-channel work School of Athens will be presented in the Toon’s Kitchen, opening November 8th along side of the Main gallery presentation of Dead Air by Steven Bates.
Gallery Hours: Tuesday – Friday, Noon – 6 pm; Saturdays Noon – 4pm.
