Outrospectives

December 7, 2017 to January 27, 2018

Opening Reception: Saturday December 9, 2:30–5pm

Walkthrough tour: Thursday December 21, 12:05–12:25pm


Outrospectives empowers us to think creatively, reinforce our relationships with others and – perhaps one day – create radical and meaningful social transformation.
Utilizing photography and printmaking, Nathalie Daoust, Florin Hategan and Edwin Janzen interrogate assumptions of identity, place and meaning. These diverse artists present their own Outrospectives, encouraging us to broaden our preconceptions of the outside world and its occupants.

Photographer Nathalie Daoust’s project, Korean Dreams, is a multifaceted series that studies the secretive world of North Korean. She captured these photographs during a closely supervised pre-approved travel program. It offered a selective view of the country, veiled as a perfect society. Daoust explores the border between daydream and reality, and a lifestyle forced upon an entire nation.

Ontario printmaker Florin Hategan presents a sequence of thoughtful, large-scale linocuts. The portraits illustrate the adolescent inhabitants of the contemporary world. These perceptive works reveal the story of a small town and its disappearing natural resources, industry and population: a venerable tale of the boom/bust economy.

Winnipeg-born, Montreal-based artist Edwin Janzen’s work draws from political and popular culture. Janzen collected hundreds of mass-produced souvenir spoons, photographed them, enlarged them and removed their necks. The finished works are super-sized commemorative crests adorned with kitsch images. Janzen sees these new objects as potent media for cultural transmission and myth making.
