Angeline Simon: All that we carry | Artist Talk and Tour
All that we carry, Angeline Simon Public Art Talk & Tour Thursday September 1st, 2022 | 5 pm – 6pm PST
Join us on Thursday September 1st from 5pm – 6pm PST for an outdoor walking tour of All that we carry followed by a short conversation with Angeline Simon.
ABOUT THE EXHIBITION
Photography satisfies the human desire to record and remember, but photographs can be lost, forgotten, or fade with time, leaving us with questions about our not-so-distant past. Lethbridge-based artist Angeline Simon mines her family photographic archives for source material to create collages that span multiple time periods and geographies, fulfilling a human desire for connection and belonging. Grappling with the disconnection the artist feels to her Malaysian Chinese and German roots, All that we carry urges us to consider how culture and family history are altered or lost in the process of immigration.
All that we carry is installed on the windows of Lafarge Lake-Douglas College Skytrain Station until March 2023. All that we carry is presented in partnership with TransLink for Capture Photography Festival. Curated by Kate Henderson, Interim Visual Arts Manager.
