Sackville Tribune - - COMMUNITY -

Struts Gallery & Faucet Me­dia Arts Cen­tre are set to present the last in­stal­ment of Heat Wave, a se­ries of three guestcu­rated ex­hi­bi­tions in lo­ca­tions out­side of the gallery in sum­mer 2014.

The fi­nal ex­hi­bi­tion of the se­ries, On be­com­ing, cu­rated by Mireille Bour­geois (Hal­i­fax, N.S.), will be on view at 25 Lorne Street in Sackville from Aug. 30 to Sept. 20. The ex­hi­bi­tion is open to the public Tues­day through Satur­day from 8:30 p.m. to 11:30 p.m., and in­cludes art­works by Jen­nifer Camp­bell (Seat­tle, WA), Ja­cyn­the Car­rier (Mon­tréal, Que.), and Wes John­ston (Hal­i­fax, N.S.).

A round­table dis­cus­sion with the cu­ra­tor and the artists will be held at 8 p.m. on Satur­day, Aug. 30, at 7 Lorne Street, fol­lowed by a re­cep­tion. The ex­hi­bi­tion and round­table dis­cus­sion are free to at­tend and all are wel­come.

On be­com­ing is a pre­sen­ta­tion of three Cana­dian me­dia artists con­sist­ing of three video pro­jec­tions, which bring the ev­ery­day spec­ta­cle to two ur­ban spa­ces that have been aban­doned or are open for re-in­ter­pre­ta­tion.

The videos may en­gage ques­tions of site-speci­ficity, from the per­spec­tive of a per­formed move­ment or ges­ture guided by en­vi­ron­ment, of no­madic spa­ces and places, or the use of ob­jects that are them­selves icono­graphic of spe­cific sites.

The Heat Wave pro­gram has been made pos­si­ble through sup­port of the Canada Coun­cil for the arts and has fea­tured two ear­lier ex­hi­bi­tions cu­rated by Kay Burns (Fogo Is­land, NL) and Ryan Suter (Sackville, N.B.), in­clud­ing art­works by Stephen Kelly (Hal­i­fax, N.S.), Anne Macmil­lan (Hal­i­fax, N.S.), Liss Platt (Hamil­ton, Ont.), and col­lab­o­ra­tors David Hof­fos & Mary-Anne McTrowe (Leth­bridge, Alta.).
