This group exhibition explores the idea of artists’ experiences with the Canadian “landscape.” It offers locations and places as alien, foreign, new, and fantastical, with a hint of nostalgia, creating an atmosphere of reflection and a meditation on the mundane and the science-fiction element of landscape. Through aural and visual scapes and interventions within the given spaces, the exhibition will give birth to a new place of reflection.
Opening Reception: 20 September 2012
