@Propeller: Here and There (and the threads in between)

Here and There, Courtesy of Propeller Gallery

Curated Exhibition organized by Propeller Centre for the Visual Arts in collaboration with One Hour Empire

Canada is commonly perceived as a nation of immigrants: people displaced and uprooted by events that are out of their control. They exist and work here while their hearts and minds are still there. This double life is not just an immigrant experience. You may live here in your parents' home but have a fantasy life there in the World of Warcraft. You may spend your daily grind here in the city while you live in the outskirts of town. You may suffer from illness here but imagine being healthy there. You may face yourself here in a mirror and under a microscope there.

The premise of the show is the juxtaposition of your two places in the broadest sense of place. Artists often use different forms when dealing with here and there while sometimes the differences are only in the content. We expect to see two separate works for HERE and THERE but we will also consider a single artwork if you feel it better presents your double life.
