LINEs OF FLIGHT: subterranean

Jessica Morgun / WL Altman

Join us for the Opening Reception, Thursday, May 16th, at 8pm
On view May 16–June 22, 2019
Artist mini-residency period:  May 3-16, 2019
Curated by David LaRiviere, Artistic Director, PAVED Arts

Returning to the theme of perceptual semiotics, this exhibition explores the “rhizomatic” or subterranean connections that can be drawn from working below the surface.

Saskatoon-based artist Jessica Morgun, who attended the Murmur Land Studios field school in August of 2018, will be creating a new work for the billboard space inspired by the encounters and critical discourse fostered during this residency. Morgun will focus on land markings in Saskatchewan that form over many generations through ritual acts.

WL Altman (Regina, SK) is developing an installation work that takes inspiration from the rhizome better known as crabgrass. Cultivating this mostly unwanted plant in his studio, Altman will be mapping onto its multidirectional connections an audio scape and video configuration specific to the PAVED Arts main gallery space.

For both artists, much of this experimental process in developing their work will be undertaken during a production residency period at PAVED Arts, endowed with full access to our production centre.
