>> Ghoul­ish tales il­lus­trated for ex­hibit — plus old snap­shots of Canada

Draw­ing on Asian folk tales to cre­ate strik­ing paint­ings of ghosts and gob­lins, Howie Tsui is one of four artists fea­tured in The Truth of the Mat­ter, an ex­hi­bi­tion that delves into is­sues of im­mi­grant his­to­ries and per­sonal nar­ra­tives. Cindy Stel­mack­owich ex­plores the fetishiza­tion of the hu­man body with a plas­tic limb stuffed with med­i­cal pa­pers; Rachel Kal­pana James’s video dip­tych has ac­tors read­ing anony­mous pas­sages from the In­ter­net to high­light the hu­man need to share trau­mas on­line; Nor­man Takeuchi’s work com­bines el­e­ments of his Ja­panese and Cana­dian her­itage to evoke heal­ing. On dis­play at the Ottawa Art Gallery un­til Fe­bru­ary 7. (p. 41)
