Art Exhibition: Strength & Fragility

June 22 – August 18, 2024

Marney-Rose Edge

Strength & Fragility

Reception + Artist Talk: SATURDAY, June 22nd at 5pm

This exhibition explores the fragility found in nature specifically represented by the nests of birds, captured in charcoal and cold wax. Nests are built to house the most precious and fragile objects, their eggs. There is nothing more fragile than new life and time is short for the birth to happen and the survival of their young for the species to continue. Some nests are extreme in the lack of materials used. Possibly a few strands of grass or sticks that defy the very word of protection for the egg laid.

Art Exhibition: symbionts of capitalist ruin

June 22 – August 18, 2024

Gwenyth Chao

symbionts of capitalist ruin

Reception + Artist Talk: SATURDAY, June 22nd at 5pm

symbionts of capitalist ruin is an ongoing project by Gwenyth Chao where she reimagines the bodies and ecologies that may emerge in a time following our climate emergency. The exhibition features new sculptural work since the series began in 2022. Many of the earlier symbiont bodies have aged and decayed in response to its surroundings, yet Chao embraces this break down as an ever-growing process of becoming-with. Leading up to the exhibition, Chao is an artist-in-residence at Coppermoss and will be learning with the human and non-human ecologies in the community of Sechelt and the Sunshine Coast.
