  • These Peoples: Aug 15-26

    thesepeoples_poster (final)


    Reception: Saturday Aug 15th

    Dates: Aug 15-26, 2015

     

    Alex Sheriff is creating new worlds. They are thick jungles, ocean bottoms, deep space, and other places unexplored where there still exists the potential for new ways of being.

    Using the familiar language of our own planet, Sheriff fills his worlds with peculiar animals, plants, people, geology and then blends these categories. These worlds where all matter is equal can only be expressed through the language of abstraction. The inhabitants and their surroundings are as malleable as wet paint. They cannot be exactly described by science and therefore can only be understood through mythology.

    These Peoples tells the stories of a fictional society. Dreamy narratives displayed through painting, collage and video portray an image of a group of beings existing in a way that is foreign to us, but strangely relatable.

    “Cultural identity, in this sense, is a matter of ‘becoming’ as well as ‘being’. It belongs to the future as much as to the past. It is not something which already exists, transcending place, time, history and culture.” –Stuart Hall

    I DO NOT KNOW WHERE THIS BELONGS is an investigation into the limitations and boundaries established by the act of translation. Navigating the liminal and transitory space between languages and cultures, six emerging Toronto-based artists interpret the fluid nature of perception.

    Through both didactic and abstract representations of translation, members of the OKAY Collective explore notions of communication and belonging, and the inevitable breakdown of information that occurs through transformation. By specifically deconstructing or alternately simulating traditional narratives, the artists examine the intricacies and fallibilities of translation through a cultural perspective.

    By employing varied mediums, the disintegration of language and meaning is further enforced. The array of approaches seeks to create a dialogue between the flexibility and confines of transformed information, while situating the conversation in the realm of possibility.
