"And the voices came from nowhere" 
Lee Henderson
October 13 - November 11, 2017

 
Opening Reception

Friday, October 13th, 6-8PM

A tarot deck of metaphysical whisky tasting notes.
Photographs of phenomena at haunted locations.
A cask that binds the ghost of a cooper.
Copper vessels used to capture vapours left by spirits.

We use the term "spirit" to describe ghosts; to describe an apparition come back to haunt us, or remind us, or watch over us. It can mean something that hangs in the aether, in an even-less-bodily sense, as affect or ideal. It refers also to alcohol, to liquor—to that which we inhale and then imbibe.

Such nominative fluctuations formed the basis for Henderson's explorations while in residence at the Glenfiddich Distillery during the summer of 2017. With this, his second solo exhibition at the gallery, the artist builds on his continued investigation into how we imagine the limits of the bodily as he repurposes the technologies and techniques of spiritcraft.

Artist Biography 

Lee Henderson (b.1979) is a contemporary artist whose practice includes video, photography, installation, sculpture, performance, and text. His work moves in constant contemplation of death, in senses grand and minute, somewhere between the persistence of collective histories and the brevity of individual lives. Henderson has studied art in Canada and Germany, holding a BFA from the Alberta College of Art and Design (2003) and an MFA from the University of Regina (2005). Recent exhibitions include Palliative Care (1985-1992) at Latitude 53, Edmonton (2016), Folklore and Other Panics at The Rooms, St. Johns (2015), The Half Lit Moon at Nuit Blanche, Edmonton (2015) and The Known Effects of Lightning on the Body, a solo presentation at YYZ, Toronto (2014). His work appears regularly across Canada, and occasionally in Los Angeles, Washington, Chicago, Naples, and Berlin. Notable recent venues and screenings include The Phillips Collection, Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, the Magenta Festival Boston, The Zero Film Festival (USA); The Dunlop Art Gallery and the Mendel Art Gallery (Canada). Henderson's work can be found in private and public collections including the Mendel Art Gallery/Remai Modern Art Gallery of Saskatchewan, the University of Regina President's Collection, and The Center for Fine Art Photography USA.

He received the Gattuso Prize for his exhibition Never Letting Us Take Breath presented at Zalucky Contemporary as a Featured Exhibition on the occasion of the 2016 CONTACT Photography Festival. 

Lee Henderson is the 2017 Canadian Glenfiddich Artist in Residence Prize winner.

The artist would like to thank the Glenfiddich Distillery and Andy Fairgrieve.
