Members of the Aboriginal Students Association at OCAD sew together personal individual perspectives to create a collaborative painting. This collection of images represents the piecing together of distinct individual life experiences which culminate in an expression of rediscovering ourselves individually, artistically and culturally. In creating this group piece we are reinforcing the supportive spirit for OCAD Students who identify as First Nations, Native, Aboriginal, Indigenous, Inuit or M'tis to establish a community, to network and to support each other as artists and designers.

FACULTY SABBATICAL TALK: DR. SOYANG PARK

PERFORMING COMMUNITY, ECOLOGICAL ART AND JIRISAN PROJECT

The Jirisan Project (ongoing) was conceived in 2013 as a new form of community art project initiated by artists, curators, religious and community leaders, who tried to foster community revitalization through the mutually interrelated ecological, cosmological, national, and global perspectives and imaginations. With the slogans of “from the region to the nation/world/cosmos” and “from the nation/world/cosmos back to the region,” this project explores the ways in which artists and designers can support and learn from the initiatives of the grassroots inter-religious and community network of Buddhists, Catholics, Protestants, and Cheondogyo, operating in the Jiri mountain region since a decade ago to establish a sustainable rural community. This project also shed a new light on the significance of the reverse immigrations (Gwinong), or “back-to-land” movement of young people who left the city and moved to the countryside to subsist through farming and other activities since the mid- 1990s. The returnee as driving forces of the community and religious network, have turned this rural community into a hub of counter-capitalist, co-operative, and ecological education and social movement, fostering a new socio-economic and philosophical perspective that arose from a profound critique of the unsustainable mode of development the rapidly industrialized country had undergone.

Mariner 9, 2012

Mariner 9, 2012
Monday, December 16, 2013 - 7:00pm

A Scotiabank Nuit Blanche commissioned work by OCAD U alumna, Kelly Richardson

Kelly Richardson’s Mariner 9 is a life-size, 12-metre-long panoramic view of a Martian landscape set hundreds of years in the future, littered with the rusting remains of various missions to the planet. Despite its suggested state of abandonment, several spacecraft continue to partially function and do their intended jobs, seeking signs of life, transmitting the data back to no one.

Mariner 9 was created using scenery-generation software employed by the film and gaming industries in combination with technical data from NASA's missions to Mars to produce a faithful artist's rendering of a Martian terrain, populated by debris from centuries of exploration featuring real and imagined spacecraft in the centre of a dust storm.

Richardson draws on science-fiction cinema, literature and the history of landscape painting. Her digital videos interweave fine art, animation, real footage of natural wildernesses and CGI, to create highly sophisticated and immersive works realised over many months and sometimes years. She has shown in the Beijing, Gwangju and Busan biennales, TIFF, Sundance Film Festival and has exhibited in major museums including the Hirshhorn Museum, Albright-Knox Art Gallery, Musée d’art contemporain de Montréal and Art Gallery of Ontario.
