[caption id="attachment_101732" align="aligncenter" width="600"] My Body by Deana Gisborne (2019), 43’ x 39.5’, Graphite on Paper[/caption]
The State of Not Knowing is an exhibition works on paper by Ernesto Hidalgo (print media) and Deanna Gisborne (painting & drawing).
Artist statement: Ultimately, a search for our complicated identities is at the heart of our work, whether this is manifested by obscuring the body, multiplying form, collapsing into a writhing vortex or creating dream-like worlds where animals and humans intersect. We try to reconcile contradictions in ourselves, made possible through the unbounded language of art. All of this probing of the self-conscious mind is expressed in bodies, trying from all angles to reach that same conclusion and achieve resolution: Who am I, and how can I grasp this ever-evolving self? This question is, of course, unanswerable, but we continue this cycle indefinitely, because we are human, and we are curious.
Monday-Thursday, 9am – 4:00pm

[caption id="attachment_101740" align="aligncenter" width="700"] Detail from A Lament, by Kristen Elizabeth Donoghue-Stanford, 2019, Acrylic Yarn, 15ft x 5ft x 10ft[/caption]
Lifelines (Hilda) is a solo sculpture and time based art installation by Kristen Elizabeth Donoghue-Stanford focused on the theme of lamentation and mourning of someone who is no longer present.
Artist statement: The exhibition will focus around ideas of life, death, loss, and remembrance, interplaying with one another. 87 knitted tubes in neutral colours will be suspended within the gallery space, arranged to create guided pathways and a knitted canvass for video projection.
The installation will be curated in order to showcase a metaphorical image of the lifelines of a particular life; that of a woman named Hilda, whom the footage collected belonged to. 87 knitted tubes will be used within the installation showcasing the number of years Hilda lived until she passed away on January 6th, 2019. The video shows Hilda and her family throughout several years of their lives and will be played on loop throughout the exhibition. A slight distortion will be used in order to hide or blur certain images within the video frame, as well as the projection onto the knitwork will add its own distortion. This is meant to symbolize the memories we don’t always get to keep with us, even when someone has left us. As one of Hilda’s favourite pastimes and a skill that she passed onto the next generation of her family, the knitwork could not more perfectly summarize the complicated, yet beautiful framework of a life. In this installation we experience the feelings of remembrance and loss and face the concepts of life and death as we witness the lifelines of somebody who is no longer with us through the process of lamenting. It opens the possibility for reflection and the ability to express gratitude towards such a life.
