This is one of the odd little creatures I've made for the upcoming show at the Crichton Community Centre. More images coming soon!
Here are the details:
Crichton Community Centre
To Build a Vibrant Centre: The Corridor Gallery
Vernissage: Friday April 4, from 6 pm - 10 pm
2nd Floor 200 Crichton Street
The exhibition runs until May 31.
Artists: Karina Bergmans, Leanne L'Hirondelle, Alex Leblanc, Theo
Pelmus, and Tavi Weisz. Curated by Alisdair MacRae
The artists were asked to respond to the gallery space on the second
floor, the history of the building, the local area, or similar spaces
that provide a meeting place for a variety of community groups. Even the
concept of community itself. For the Crichton, Karina has created an
installation of fibre sculptures 'air cleanser' creatures. As a way to
aid the air quality in the facility, the air creatures are at once
beautiful and frightening, a reflection of the microscopic world
existing beyond our five senses.
