Nazanin Khani: My Hidden Self

Opening and informal Q & A with artist:  Monday Sept 12, 5.30-7 pm

Exhibition Dates:  Sept. 12, 2016 - Jan 6, 2017

Nazanin Khani’s works are expressive, inviting her viewers to immerse themselves in speculation. She relies on her audience’s desire for beauty, poetics, ecstasy and seduction. She bends, twists, scrapes, reforms, cuts, performs, records, and edits her materials to represent and investigate her dreams, memories, imagination, personal experiences, and social/cultural concerns from a critical point of view.

This recent work, My Hidden Self, is a story of pain and growing self-consciousness; a narrative representation of the various invisible disabilities caused by breast cancer treatment and the impact all this has on the treated and surviving body. This project deals with body politics and explores the challenges that young breast cancer survivors face, and critiques the very nature of what “survivorship” in this context means.

Nazanin Khani recently graduated from OCAD University in Sculpture-Installation. Her art practice is inspired and informed  by the many intersections she has experienced in language and communication, and through various epistemological and phenomenological investigations. 

Curator-in-residence WIAprojects : The Curator in Residence for this project, Julia Pereira, is an OCAD student in Illustration.

 

Venue & Address:

Holomentis: A Sculpture Installation by DF Graduate Student Marcus A. Gordon

Friday, August 26, 2016 - 4:00am

Marcus A. Gordon, MFA Digital Futures (DF) Candidate, was tasked by the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC) to collaborate with Cerebral Diagnostics and OCAD University’s PHASE Lab to create 3D neural imaging geometry, which lead to the production of a digital hologram of brain activity. Marcus’ inspiration came from a desire to create physical objects from his experience with digital technology. He refers to this process as digital physicality; where objects and structures that exist within our physical world are derived by digital means.

Holomentis is a sculpture representing Marcus’ interests in working with holography as a medium where digital is used in the production process. “I want to see more creations that intuitively occupy space but are driven by digital thinking. Holomentis is an example of this process, but what makes Holomentis unique, is it’s fusion of an acrylic sculpture with a digital hologram. Holomentis doesn’t require a digital technology tool for interaction, simply move around the Holomentis sculpture and experience its dimensionality,” says Marcus Gordon.

Holomentis was curated by Anda Kubis. Special thanks to Michael Page, John Kuisma, Natalie Logan, Steve Richards, Ashley Snook and Claudette Abrams.

inherent likenesses or agreements, close resemblances or connections accepted or adopted tentatively; conditional; probationary.

as when the residue of the pre-existing slips along-side, and tucks into; as when desperation leads to formation of temporal assemblages. 

mis-taking reliance, re-calling barrier. disparate concurrence, injudiciously offset with neologism... we do as we do until we can do differently, and even so, we don’t. 

Provisional Affinities is a group show featuring four graduating thesis students, including work from Tomas Camilo Acevedo, Moira Campbell, Amanda Arantes, and Mickey Mackenna from OCADU’s Sculpture and Installation program at Braver Hall Gallery (29 McCaul St).
