As part of Exposure 2010, I have an exhibit opening locally in Canmore on February 6th. The show is titled Vestur + Islendingur and is a document of my experience as a West Icelander returning to the homeland. It's only up for a week so please come check it out! There are also a couple other shows happening at Elevation Gallery in the next few weeks. Check out the attached invite.
Also forthcoming, the "Booth Project", now formally titled The Diner, Saturday Mornings will make it's first appearance at the Botega Salon and Gallery in Banff in February. The Diner, Saturday Mornings is an interactive sculptural installation involving a real booth purchased from Marv's Soda Shop in Black Diamond, Ab and consists of video footage captured in three restaurants along the Cowboy trail in south western Alberta. Gallery/salon visitors will be able to sit at the booth and use a jukebox selector box to choose which diner they would like to be immersed in. This is a collaborative work produced with artists Lindsay MacDonald (Calgary) and Lia Rogers (Calgary). (As a side note Lindsay and Lia will be doing a performance for Art's Birthday tomorrow at Emmedia in Calgary- check that out too! http://www.emmedia.ca/programming/ArtsBDay.html)
The Booth should be in place by February 6th and there will be a closing reception at the end of February. More details to follow! I've got a couple pictures on this blog listed under the tag "diners" that will bring up some of the photographs I took during production.
