    Signy Holm – Vatnið (For the Lake)

    Exhibition Runs: February 19 – March 2, 2018
    Reception: March 1, 2018 6 pm – 8 pm
    Main Mall at the Alberta College of Art + Design

    Join us March 1st in the ACAD Main Mall for the official reception from 6 – 8 pm! A bar will be on site :)

    Artist’s Statement & Bio:

    Vatnið (For the Lake) is an installation exploring memory and longing and the attempts that one makes to relive the places of the past. Sound recordings that have been isolated become repetitive mantras, yet the distortion of the voices create a distance and a desire for clarity that cannot be attained. Collected artifacts such as beach glass, stones and shells are manipulated through physical and digital interventions. These objects become unfamiliar and skewed from their original state. The viewer is free to move through the installation and to allow the various objects and sounds to inform them, with the evocation of the past in a present space.

    Signy Holm is in her third year at the Alberta College of Art + Design studying drawing. She works primarily in performance, new media and sculpture. She is currently the director of HORSE CLUB, a student-run club dedicated to the facilitation of media arts, as well as a member of The Pidgin Collective, a student group focused on writing and critical discourse. Signy Holm lives and works in Calgary, Alberta.

    Join us this Thursday in the ACAD Main Mall for the opening reception from 6 – 8 pm! A bar will be on site :)

    Artist’s Statement & Bio:

    Through mixed media work, I examine the archive that we create when posting on social media. Using text from my personal social media posts, I create a comparison of thoughts that someone might think in person versus what they would post online. This collection of text pieces on cellophane touches on widespread yet unmentioned issues such as the romanticization of mental illness online, beauty standards for women and how that impacts judgements, and disparities between one’s identity in person and the identities we create online.

    Jenna Wyatt is a Canadian interdisciplinary artist whose work is questioning the romanticization of mental health issues, set beauty standard for women online as well as identity in real life versus identities we create online. She is currently attending the Alberta College of Art + Design, majoring in Drawing.

    Martina Westib – S(ing)k

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

    Join us this Thursday in the ACAD Main Mall for the opening reception from 6 – 8 pm! A bar will be on site :)

    Artist’s Statement & Bio:

    Through my work I explore the idea of the reservoir as a repository for matter. With the sink as a metaphor we can think of its form as a container for collected energies that are in varying states of release over time. My works are resonant bodies recording the moment of impact. They absorb instances of directional force and reverberate the dual nature of experience. Caught in cycles and outside of them simultaneously, they are fast and slow, touched and untouched as they retain and let go.

    Martina is a multi media artist who has been highly impacted by a life of travel, adaptation, and curiosity. Her current practice is an exploration of longing and displacement. She will be graduating from ACAD in 2018, and has been nominated for BMO 1st Art! Prize and the ACADBoard of Governors Graduating Student Award.

    Emilie MacPhail – Reveries

    Reception: Thursday, March 15, 2018
    6 pm – 7 pm at Arts Commons +15 Space with optional drinks to follow at the Palomino.

    Artist’s Statement & Bio:

    Reveries explores Emilie MacPhail’s connection to the natural landscapes that surround her home. Having long felt a deep spiritual connection to these spaces, she uses her experiences within them as an escape, as therapy and for meditation. During these moments, MacPhail has a tendency to collect natural materials as mementoes of these experiences, supplies for her pieces and for inspiration when creating work. She uses a variety of Fibre techniques such as embroidery, weaving and felting to create a collaboration between object and artist. Each piece tells the story of a memory, in a subtle and quiet way.

    MacPhail is currently attending the Alberta College of Art + Design, to obtain her BFA in Fibre. Much of her work is inspired by the Albertan landscape’s native flora and fauna. She works with Fibre techniques such as weaving, embroidery, felting and silkscreen printing.
