Connie Chappel: Embodiment, Opening Reception at aceartinc.

  • aceartinc. 290 McDermot Avenue, 2nd Floor Winnipeg Canada (map)

This multi-faceted exhibition uses sculptural installation to combine curious material into experimental archaeological scenarios. Unusual juxtapositions of artificial and natural objects investigate the idiosyncrasies of organic growth, decay and exhumation processes. Cryptic memorials merge kinetic twigs and branches with static rocks and body parts. Quivering air currents enliven suspended tree roots. An ambient glow beneath stain of sap drops on paper pays hommage to a meaningful birch wound. This living artifact display aims to conceive a highly delicate, eerie + fantastical forest that finds itself suspended in time.
Artist talk: May 4, 2pm
Exhibition runs: April 26 – May 24, 2019
