the distance between looks to the border of shared experience and questions how intimacy, while making this border tangible, may also act upon it in subtle ways. Through video and projection installation, spaces are created to incorporate a suggested choreography of interplay between viewer and object and to trigger curiosity in what happens in the spaces in-between oneself and another, oneself and the world.  

Kelly O’Neill’s work is about body, relationship, materiality, identity and border. Within these broad terms she looks to subtleties, the poetic, in an effort to uncover understanding. Working with assemblage and text, video and projection, and incorporating traditional textile methods with unconventional materials, she creates objects and experiences that explore the fluidity and impermeability of embodied experience.

Kelly is currently completing her BFA in Sculpture and Installation at OCAD University. This exhibition presents the body of work she has been building for her final Thesis project.

Featuring Artists:

Allison MacPhail- My work revolves around being an activist within your community. Preventing the normalization of abuse within the service industry is what I have chosen to examine in detail within this body of work. We all go through it so now lets fight against it! Using craft methods and mutual experience I attempt to start a conversation to build community driven resistance for these important issues.

Ayala Reznik- Born and raised in Israel, Ayala is a Toronto-based sculptor and multi-media artist whose recent work has explored representation of the female body, particularly through the aesthetics of the Paleolithic and Neolithic eras, and its contemporary relevance in considering issues and representations of abuse, trauma, and healing.
She has developed her understanding of this theme through sculpture and installation, performance art, and photography, and through this work has come to understand the profound and meaningful continuity between prehistoric representations of women's bodies and self-representations of female bodies today.

Krysztof Kowolik: Liquid Time

Tuesday, March 13, 2018 - 10:00am to Saturday, March 24, 2018 - 5:00pm

Liquid Time

By: Krysztof Kowolik

Opening Taking place March 15th, 2018 from 6-8pm

Show is running from March 13th-24th

Krysztof Kowolik is a sculptor and installation Artist who has had a life long love of and fascination with the special effects created in film. These artforms have had a huge impact on the content and mediums that he uses in his art practice. Liquid Time began as works titled Spill Series, they are a love letter to the practical special effects employed by Artist and craftspeople working in Hollywood.

Krysztof’s striking images began with a piece of glass and a black curtain to set the stage for an alchemical dance between two formless bodies. Materials collide and envelop one another in a push and pull performance that mimics shifts seen and experienced throughout our own deep dark universe. Like the pioneer Artists of old the techniques of producing original film stock was developed through the mixing and interaction of chemicals and compounds of different densities to produce moving images and film stills depicting dynamic imagery. Liquid Time is the result of old techniques finding new life to produce moving images through the use of chemicals and natural materials to mimic a landscape and reality that are ambiguous and can be interpreted as a macro view of the universe or a micro one.
