Progress 

Rowena Katigbak

Exhibition Duration: December 3 to December 21, 2018

 rowena IMG 0656 2

Rowena is currently exploring the idea of play as a form of rebellion against archetypes and outdated patriarchal thinking through a series of kinetic sculptures called Progress. In contrasting the two words, “play” and “rebellion,” She is seeking to shift people’s thinking about how we perceive these words.

"Rebellion doesn’t have to be a hard and angry word. Play can be fun and purposeful. We need to re-examine our perceptions and realize that patriarchal thinking is obsolete. Let’s clear it out to make way for more flexible modes of thinking." says Rowena.

Progress uses interactive kinetic sculptures based on automatons and toys to engage viewers. Their perspectives shift from spectator to participant. They are controlling the mechanism which drives the work. They are becoming empowered through play. Each sculpture was created using pieces from old toys and upcycled parts, collages cut from various printed materials as well as some new materials. Rowena enjoys creating work from found and upcycled pieces. She loves seeing participants’ delight when they identify the toy parts and play with them. And, they see how these parts have been given new lives within my sculptures. These works honour the past while using this knowledge to lift us into the future with hope, joy and love.

 

Her work has been exhibited in Toronto, ON and can be found in private collections in North America and the Philippines. Her art is available for purchase at the Riverside location of The ArtsMarket (790 Queen St. E., Toronto, ON).

Procession

Petra Alexson

Exhibition Duration: December 3 to December 21, 2018

Petra Alexson is a multimedia artist who uses world-building as a way to clarify an understanding of the universe. Her work serves to organize her thought process into a constantly-developing world that is embedded into her imagination. "Procession" is a look into this parallel world: an encrypted document about astronomy, physics, and black holes.

"Procession" is an installation based on digital illustration. The floor of the box is a mirror, reflecting the sides and the top of the box onto the bottom, which gives a sense of a never-ending space inside the box. The visuals on the walls of the box seem to circle a chasm.  Click here for website info
