The art Gallery of Calgary presents to the community another amazing exhibition called " The Pile Project" - as a part of Exposure 2011: Calgary-Banff-Canmore Photography Festival. On February 4th, 2011 during the opening reception at The Art Gallery we had chance to see great art featuring photography, painting & sculptures of three talented artists: Katherine L.Lannin, d. bradley muir and Ming Hyung.
Katherine L.Lannin's (who currently lives and works in Toronto) photographs are the evidence of space at play. She dislocates objects and their function, leaving the purpose of the space in question. The new interpretation is surprising but at the same time-amazing!!!
Dear Home and Swimmers are the two series of photography work by Montreal based artist - d. bradley muir which show the process of analyzing the ideal domestic environment and nostalgic experiences explored through constructed components and organic elements.
Originally from Seoul, Korea - Min Hyung has exhibited around the world in solo and group exhibitions so having a chance to see her work in Calgary was a true pleasure for art lovers. Min uses present-day society, allegory and historical art records of culture to inform her multilayered practice. Vividly constructed with intense colour, her paintings and sculptures challenge presently held notions of normalcy within society.
"Thank you" words to Valerie Cooper, The President of The Art Gallery of Calgary for giving us all a chance to experience such an amazing world of art as well as I would like to thank Tara Whittaker ( http://www.tarawhittaker.com/ ) who've done great work capturing the opening night!!!
