Last Chance to see Ryan Suter’s “BLIMP” and Tonia DiRisio’s “Feed” at the Owen’s Art GalleryPosted: December 13, 2010
Sackville, New Brunswick is home to the Owens Art Gallery, the oldest University Art Gallery in Canada. If you are in the neighborhood in the next week, you get the chance to see two great exhibitions on there now.
Feed, an exhibition of recent work by Halifax artist Tonia DiRisio will continue at the Owens until December 19th. Feed features footage taped in 2006 when DiRisio traveled to a small town in Italy and recorded a series of women preparing a variety of local dishes in their kitchens. This work examines the tradition of passing and sharing of family recipes. The footage she has collected has been developed into a video installation.
BLIMP, a video installation by Ryan Suter, is located in the window of the Owens Art Gallery each evening until December 16th. Blimp explores the anxieties of the “daily grind” and the human strategies for dealing with these situations. Killing time becomes the narrative thread as these small players manage as best they can in a world that is far from chaotic. Ryan Suter is a multi-disciplinary artist living and working in Sackville, NB.
