Kapwani Kiwanga: A Wall Is Just A Wall (And Nothing More At All)
Esker Foundation, Calgary, AB - Feb 3-May 6
This provocative exhibition includes an immersive environment, pink-blue; a newly commissioned video work, A Primer, and a sound work, 500 ft., along with recent, research-based sculptures. Hamilton-born, Paris-based artist Kapwani Kiwanga asks viewers to consider the ways in which institutional architecture and design may be used to regulate our moods and control our behaviour. Among the often overlooked elements she explores here are paint colours, fluorescent lighting and one-way mirrors.
