2009 Exhibition, In Between
Curated by EJ Lightman and Anne O'Callaghan
Dyan Marie's work Experience Canada: Canadian Experience explores the idea of immigration fostered by the allure of the imagined Canadian landscape. Silhouettes of inner city shop owners, posed in front of their storefronts, are in-filled with forest and lake landscapes.
Ed Pien in his previous installations has drawn upon a host of allusions: the labyrinth as metaphor of the inner and outer journey of human existence, the forest as locus of change and challenge, and the body as both the ultimate home for every human being, and as a place of vulnerability.
