grunt gallery kicks off our 30th anniversary programming with a residency and exhibition with Vancouver-based artist Julia Feyrer entitled, Kitchen. Taking the form of an evolving installation in the main gallery space, Feyrer’s work engages with materials and documentation from the grunt archives in the production of a new, site-specific environment.
“Process-based and meticulously—if playfully—constructed, Feyrer’s work is both densely material and intellectually airy; that is, her work challenges the viewer to engage both a tactile experience in this present moment, while simultaneously considering the transformative potential of perception, over time and through space. Feyrer’s use of materials acts as a conduit for seeing and, importantly, for experiencing an archival document.” – Vanessa Kwan, curatorial statement.
