Ciona constructed a 'nest' or 'web' out of rope and string, both constructing and inhabiting it during the gallery's open hours. The 'unseen interval' refers to the sense of wonder that a viewer must experience upon witnessing a project or construction in progress, leaving for a period of time, and returning to find the creation has progressed into something new or more complete.

Marlene Madison's new works Audition Tapes and Open Call explore notions of "Celebrity". Audition Tapes, a single screen video installation, consists of three "cold" readings of a prepared text in a format that closely resembles a screen test. Open Call is the reading by 15 actors and non-actors of texts they receive when they arrive at the event.

Converging in the space of a gallery, the proposed exhibition, Anatomica Nervosa, will unify a synthesis of two project series, Project Series: Preserves and What She Saw. Installed concurrently, a body of work will surface, each project[ion] intent on informing an independent yet synchronous discourse of bodily disclosure, a narrative set in reference to a visual and textual process coherent within interdisciplinary practices. Realized on site, the work will reflect an atmosphere of archive, multiple sites constructed of multiple mediums performing multiple readings, a visual shifting of textual boundaries between the mediums and the exhibition state. The exhibition will unfold, collecting, compiling, and housing images, the objects of photographic image and the specimens of anatomical waxes. Over the months, the proposed work will continue to actualize, substantially increasing in collection and size, image and text yet; the premise and [psycho] analysis will remain unaltered. Accompanying the exhibition is further support material, in particular, a text entitled Lapsus Lingae: [Slip of the Tongue], a narrative of fact/fiction/friction that informed and initiated the beginnings of this project, and photographic images wherein the sites were of chance and circumstance, the collection only a construct in assemblage.

Personal Mythology Is the temple a secret retreat within my own mind? Is the angel a myth of my own potential? The symbol waits for you – to find your own personal mythology. Humankind has always invented myths that search for inner perfection. Amidst the seeming chaos of our real world, mythology offers us hope for a greater potential. These works draw on symbols from classical and religious mythology, inventing new symbols for modern times.

Four Faces of the Moon is multi-media installation that provides a behind-the-scenes glimpse into the elaborate sets, puppets, and props created for the new stop motion animated film by the same name. The story is told in four chapters, which explore the reclamation of language and Nationhood, and peel back the layers of Canada’s colonial history. A personal story told through the eyes of director and writer Amanda Strong, as she connects the oral and written history of her family as well as the history of the Michif (Métis), Cree and Anishinaabe people and their cultural ties to the buffalo. Canada’s extermination agenda of the buffalo isn’t recorded as fervently as it was in the United States, yet the same tactics were used north of the border to control the original inhabitants of the land. This story seeks to uncover some of that history and establish the importance of cultural practice, resistance and language revival from a personal perspective. Artistic collaborators include: Bracken Hanuse Corlett, Raven John, Femke van Delft, Chloe Bluebird, Dora Cepic, Dusty Hagerud, William Weird, Daniel Guay, Lydia Brown, Terrance Azzuolo, Callum Paterson, Tim Daniel, Joce Weird, Ian Nakamoto, Lynn Dana Wilton, Zed Alexander, Danielle Wilson, Damien Buddy Eaglebear, Colour Sound Lab Studio, Boldly Creative, Outpost Media and Menalon Music, along with the support of many others.
