...a narration spun through work that pushes the limits as to what an artist can do with fibre today. Similar to social misfits that sit on the outskirts of society, like mad inventors experimenting, and geniuses with universal knowledge, this exhibition encourages the far reaches of thought and imagination. Does society hang by a thread, will the Fates cut the cord, oh what a tangled web we weave…here is an opportunity to see work that follows a string into a world on the periphery.

The Corridor Gallery proudly presents 26 Letters And Then There Were None, an exhibition featuring Karina Bergmans and Julie Tucker at Crichton Cultural Community Centre, 200 Crichton Street, 2nd Floor, Ottawa. (Please use Avon Lane entrance at rear.)
Karina Bergmans and Julie Tucker present a multimedia exhibition that plays with language, learning and the institutional setting where we receive instruction. The artists incorporate playful notions of the alphabet, nursery rhymes and arithmetic with architectural facets, historical fragments and the eerie lure of our own connection to the past through memory and ghosts. Implicitly raising questions around the objects and the site in which they are located, there are no reassuring answers. While early childhood education gives us the tools to process our experiences, we are left to our own devices to decide how to use them.
This show is the second of two juried exhibitions that will be presented by the Corridor Gallery this season. The Gallery is operated by the Crichton Cultural Community Centre and its mission is to provide opportunities to emerging professional artists living and working in the region.
