    MNG - Kyrsten Lofts - Wake Up Sterile Nightmare - Feb2018

    Kyrsten Lofts – Wake Up Sterile Nightmare

    Exhibition Runs: February 5 – 16, 2018
    Reception: February 15, 2018, 6 pm – 8 pm
    Main Mall at the Alberta College of Art + Design

    Join us February 15th in the ACAD Main Mall for the official reception from 6 – 8 pm!

    Artist’s Statement & Bio:

    Through painting I critically examine medical and art historical contexts that have informed a subjective understanding of the body. Using a method of depiction, idealized sculptural bodies are met with synthetic tubes, plastic sheets, and technologies, held together by a metal rod in a tentative structure, ready to break or bend under the weight they carry. This weight is not purely formal, but the weight of anxieties of mortality, and the everlasting heroic battle to fight human expiry. My paintings attempt to memorialize the phrase “as long as humanly possible”, searching for what this statement truly means in light of today’s medical endeavours and the quest of heroic divinity over the corporeal.

    Kyrsten Lofts is a Canadian interdisciplinary artist whose work aims to de-familiarize predetermined knowledge of the human form and its function. Material research and ideas of restoration, mortality, fragility, familial relationships, and faith drive investigation within her practice. She is currently attending the Alberta College of Art + Design majoring in Painting.

    MNG - Jaime McDonald - How Far You've Come - Feb 2018

    The MNG LRT Space Presents:
    Jaime McDonald – How Far You’ve Come

    Exhibition Runs: February 5 – March 2, 2018
    Reception: February 15, 2018 6 pm – 8 pm
    Main Mall, at the Alberta College of Art and Design

    Join us February 15th in the ACAD Main Mall for the official reception from 6 – 8 pm!

    Artist’s Statement & Bio:

    Assigned binaries and expectations are the primary focus of this work. With the use of documented performance, textile elements, and a mirror, it demonstrates the struggle of forced routines and expectations placed on gender identities. The way in which the work is installed is to be read from left to right, creating a narrative and questioning those who pass by if they are contributing to the limiting standards of society. By making the issue of body politics into tangible installations when they are often disregarded and invisible, I am able to confront the audience and ask them in an aesthetic way how they resonate or contribute to these politics.

    Jaime McDonald is a queer métis woman working towards her BFA at the Alberta College of Art + Design with a major in Media Arts. Her practice is primarily based around reclaiming and grasping onto her identity in a non-intersectional society. She uses feelings of nostalgia, longing, and confrontation to address the binaries she faces.
