Krista Kilvert: Behind Closed Doors
O'Connor Group Art Gallery, Chilliwack, BC - To May 2
Artist and community worker Krista Kilvert has created a mixed-media installation with a strong social message. Employing mirrors, statistics, framed commentary by victims and some 265 small paper “houses” embossed with text, she confronts us with the appalling truths of domestic violence. Whether described as IPV (intimate partner violence), gender-based violence or femicide, the phenomenon exists in every country, culture and socio-economic circumstance, Kilvert tells us. Be aware.
