Ground Signals

Surrey Art Gallery, Surrey, BC - To Dec 10

by Robin Laurence

The 13 artists represented in this group show challenge dominant and colonialist depictions of the Canadian landscape, asking us to consider alternative ways of approaching the relationship between human beings and the natural environment. Many of the works are immersive, combining sound, image and form, and range from ceramic bowls that emit audio recordings and Indigenous songs from northern Ontario to a solar-powered “culture station” that collects stories in exchange for energy.
