Upshot is a co-production presented in conjunction with the Art Gallery of Southwestern Manitoba. It is co-curated by Anastasia Hare and Natalia Lebedinskaia, and centres on evoking suspension, and holding still the tension between action and consequence. Through the work of Canadian artists Fiona Annis, Lorna Bauer and Laura Findlay, the selected photographs and video pieces explore loss, reconstruction and potential.
The work addresses various ways of looking at the space between an event and its result; taking a breadth of manifestations including legacies, recollections, durations and expectations. This space can be narrow and momentary, in which consequences immediately follow actions, like a bulb shattering into countless pieces or the foreshadowing of its impending fall. It can also be infinite and unknown, spanning places and generations, as when consequences act as clues to actions that preceded them at indefinite times, and continue to evolve even after the events have presumably taken place.
Please join us on Friday, February 7th at 7PM for the opening reception, refreshments will be served. The Curators and the Artists: Laura Findlay and Fiona Annis will be in attendance. There will be a Curator’s tour and Artist Discussion on Saturday, February 8th @ 2PM. Both events are free and all are welcome to attend.
