Al­lur­ing Things

Open­ing Re­cep­tion: Satur­day, May 19, from 2 pm to 4 pm

Stanstead Journal - - LENNOXVILLE NEWS -

Weare proud to present to the public our new­est ex­hi­bi­tion Al­lur­ing Things, re­al­ized in col­lab­o­ra­tion with Guest Cu­ra­tor, Gen­tiane Bélanger. This ex­hi­bi­tion ex­am­ines the role played by ma­te­rial cul­ture in our com­pre­hen­sion of na­ture. For the artists pre­sented here, eco­log­i­cal re­spon­si­bil­ity in­volves a re­spect for ob­jects, an at­trac­tion to their ma­te­ri­al­ity, and recog­ni­tion of their in­flu­ence on our ac­tions. Whim­si­cal rather than mor­al­iz­ing, the Cana­dian artists of this ex­hi­bi­tion, Bill Burns, T&T, BGL, and Daniel Cor­beil take well-trod­den ma­te­rial paths to prompt al­ter­nate per­spec­tives on na­ture. The works on dis­play draw ma­te­ri­al­ism out of its usual alien­at­ing con­no­ta­tion to turn it into a re­la­tional vec­tor be­tween the nat­u­ral el­e­ment and the pro­duc­tion of cul­tural ob­jects.
