Brief Description:

Gallery Sans Nom artists - Moncton Artist Run Centre
Curated by Gallery Coordinator Mario Doucette

This exhibition is an installation based exhibit where the participants will be building a "gallery within the gallery" with small works placed inside the newly built gallery. The artists participating in this exhibit will have all created their works in a small confined, claustrophobic environment. Doucette will present a curatorial statement explaining the relationship of how claustrophobia ties in with our perceptions of 'art'.

Date: April 2000 - May 2000

Media: Paintings/photography

Artist(s): Mara Korkola and Nancy Orr

Brief Description:

Korkola - Toronto Artist
Orr - Texas Artist

Korkola and Orr take the everyday commonplace, houses/landscapes and attempt to represent the too familiar by taking it out of its regular context. In doing so, both strip the veil of familiarity and the viewer is given an opportunity to contemplate the ordinary - the extraordinary in the ordinary, the significance in the seemingly insignificant, the wonder of what we erroneously consider banal in our lives. These two are not primarily engaged with reproducing reality, but rather a more real, truer reality than the one we generally see.

Date: May 2000 - June 2000

Media: Installation

Artist(s): Erik Edson

Brief Description:
