I will be part of this exciting panel!

Thursday, January 10, 2019 
7pm- 8:30pm

RE: PLACE: AN INQUIRY
Co-presented with A Space Gallery 
@ UrbanSpace Gallery, 401 Richmond St. Toronto ON.
Urbanspace Gallery is located on the ground floor beside Trinity Square Video.

In concurrence with and on the occasion of the closing of the A Space Windows Gallery exhibition You’re Welcome, artists Jason Baerg, Vanessa Dion Fletcher, Logan MacDonald, Ange Loft, Aylan Couchie and curator Ryan Rice will share their inquiries in determining relationships to land/place/site and Indigenous presence within the urban centre of Tkaronto through their personal and collective experiences and art works on display.

The projects You’re Welcome and Overlay of the Land, which are drawn from Ryan Rice’s ongoing curatorial investigation Land is Where Your Feet Touch The Ground (#LIWYFTTG), act as creative forms to disrupt the status quo through mapping, archiving and exhibiting visual culture to acknowledge the place we call home. The inquiry of Indigenous narrative in urban spaces affords land-based opportunities to flourish on the ground we share as a means to symbolically reclaim relationship to the origins of Toronto as an Indigenous place.

20 June 2014 - 26 July 2014
Opening Reception 20 June 2014 7pm

What does it mean when we gather? What happens? Taking [a] part uses as a starting point conversations, within collectives, between artists and artists, curators and artists, peer groups and audiences, between artworks. The exhibition unfolds throughout its five-week duration, shifting from a series of three-person exhibitions in the back gallery space to an expanding group exhibition in the front gallery.

RIPPING

FOREST CITY GALLERY EXHIBITION!

Friday, February 21, 2014 to Friday, March 21, 2014
Opening Reception: Friday, Feb. 21st, 7:00- 10:00 PM

Forest City Gallery is proud to present Ripping Fabric. Tearing Holes. an exhibition by collaborators and confidantes Logan MacDonald and Hazel Meyer.

Artist Statement

Working to develop an idiosyncratic mythology showcasing parts of the self, lived experience, and imagined possibilities, Ripping Fabric. Tearing Holes. uses the complicated relationship between pleasure and pain as a starting point. By creating an immersive environment using textiles, text, video and patterned wall drawings the gallery becomes an absurd yet compelling universe where these two sensory states of being co-exist. By embracing innuendos and tongue-in-cheek references, MacDonald and Meyer lyrically explore the complex inner desires of being ripped apart, through which we are left with gaping holes, emptiness, and a splattering of subject matter all over the walls.
