IN-GALLERY EXHIBITION: 

Volcano Collective (Karen Kazmer & Deborah Koenker) |
Northern Howl: An Installation for Dogs and People
(Vancouver, BC)

Karen Kazmer and Deborah Koenker will research Yukon life and attitudes through face-to-face research, diving into interviews and gathering stories and then reflecting their perceptions back to the community for enjoyment and discussion/dispute.

Their in-gallery installation will start at the ceiling with recreations of Ursa Major and Minor (the bears) and Canis Major and Minor (the dogs). They will populate the gallery below with abstracted sculptures of wolves, dogs, and grizzly bears (a Yukon “species of concern”).

Anecdotal stories, myths and tall tales (manufactured) of dogs, wolves and bears gathered from community participants will be included in Northern Howl as audio recordings.

OFF-SITE EXHIBITION:

Kevin Yates & Robert Yates | migratory (patterns)
(Grafton, ON & Ste. Julienne, QC)

For their off-site exhibition, Robert Yates and Kevin Yates will video-record migratory bird species in Dawson City, and then create video wallpapers from which birds come and go.

The wallpaper patterns will be informed by decorative motifs once popular in the Klondike. The videos will be installed on two separate floors in Ruby’s Place, a historical Parks Canada building. The footage will be edited so that a bird leaving one projection will arrive moments later in the second projection, and vice versa.

Birds migrate across cultural boundaries as if all geographies are home. Through its bird-oriented contemplation of travel, migratory (patterns) presents a new contemplation of global connectivity and human migration.

LECTURE

Kathleen Ritter | The Sound of North
(Toronto, ON / Paris, FR)

As a starting point for a first trip north, Ritter will use the words of Glenn Gould, spoken 50 years ago, and imagine what they would sound like if spoken today:

“I’ve long been intrigued by that incredible tapestry of tundra and taiga which constitutes the Arctic and sub-Arctic of our country. I’ve read about it, written about it, and even pulled up my parka once and gone there. Yet like all but a very few Canadians I’ve had no real experience of the North. I’ve remained, of necessity, an outsider. And the North has remained for me, a convenient place to dream about, spin tall tales about, and, in the end, avoid.” — Glenn Gould, Introduction to The Idea of North, 1967

 

DOCUMENTATION

Kathleen Ritter | Post-exhibition essay

Kathleen Ritter, a curator, artist and critic who works internationally, will evolve her post-exhibition essay from conversations with the exhibiting artists and from her research into perceptions of the North from afar. Ritter’s professional work in Scotland, France, and Canada will give her a unique perspective on the context and environment of the art created and shown through The Natural & The Manufactured.

 

BIOS

The Volcano Collective: Deborah Koenker and Karen Kazmer

As an immigrant to Canada, Deborah Koenker is interested in borders, globalization, migration/immigration, the difficulties of cultural integration, building community and social justice. She has produced three installations on “disappeared” and murdered girls and women, one of which involved collaboration with 80-some residents in the village of Tapalpa, Jalisco, Mexico. Personal narratives are increasingly important to her practice; her 2016 Kelowna Art Gallery exhibition Grapes and Tortillas, for example, includes texts written by temporary seasonal agricultural workers from Mexico who come to work on farms, and in vineyards and green houses in the Okanagan Valley, BC and across Canada.

Karen Kazmer’s installations and public artworks are ongoing investigations of architectural space, human and animal interaction, originating from an interest in the body as messenger. She has worked with light, mixed media and technology in producing exhibitions for galleries in Canada and the U.S. Her community based public art projects seek imagery from public workshops, collaborations and on-site activities of people and animals. Recent gallery installations involve the use of sensor-driven pneumatic elements.

 

Kevin Yates and Robert Yates

Kevin Yates is known for his sculptural works, often highly realized miniatures, doubled to resemble a reflection in water. He likens his work to film stills: objects that hold a “pause” in space, offering the viewer time to examine and inspect. Kevin Yates holds a BFA from NSCAD and an MFA from the University of Victoria, and is currently an Associate Professor in the Visual Art & Art History Department at York University.

Robert Yates employs his film production experience to create video works that first conjure stillness, then morph into multiplying/mirrored images. The slippage between interior and exterior seems constant yet is impossible, since the images reflect layers but will not break open to further layers below.

Kevin Yates and Robert Yates began collaborating in 2011. They blend video, photography and mixed media to construct sculptural/video installations and site-specific projects. They create unnatural dream-like viewing experiences, with uncanny open-ended narratives. The works depict subtle intersections between natural and cultural worlds, leading the viewer to question perspectives and germinate new understandings.

 

Kathleen Ritter

Ritter is an artist and a curator. She was an artist in residence at La Cité Internationale des Arts, Paris, as a recipient of the Canada Council for the Arts International Residencies Program in Visual Arts, in 2013. Working with sound, photography, video, and text, often in collaboration, Ritter has exhibited her work across Canada. She was recently commissioned, along with composer James B. Maxwell, to develop a soundtrack for the international conference Institutions By Artists based on the minutes from the organizers’ board meetings.

Ritter was the Associate Curator at the Vancouver Art Gallery until 2012, where she curated the exhibitions How Soon Is Now; Beat Nation: Art, Hip Hop and Aboriginal Culture (with Tania Willard); WE: Vancouver (with Bruce Grenville); Rebecca Belmore: Rising to the Occasion (with Daina Augaitis); and commissioned public artworks for Offsite by Damian Moppett, Kota Ezawa, Elspeth Pratt, and Heather and Ivan Morison.

The Natural & the Manufactured post-exhibition essay

N+Mbrochure2013 (PDF)

The Natural & The Manufactured is a unique thematic project jointly organized by the ODD Gallery and the Artist in Residence Program at the Klondike Institute of Art & Culture. Conceived as a speculative research and presentation forum, the N&M looks to the myriad ways in which we both influence and are influenced by our natural and constructed environments.

Through a rich program of exhibitions, installations, actions, lectures and essays, The Natural & The Manufactured endeavours to engage both artists and audiences in a re-examination of the cultural, physical and economic values imposed on the environment. This project seeks to explore alternative political, social and aesthetic agendas and strategies towards a reinterpretation and new understanding of our relationship to the environment and our social infrastructure: the indelible ways in which our natural landscapes influence, inspire and sustain us, and conversely the ways in which our perceptions of- and actions upon- these landscapes directly impact the environment itself.

_____________________________

A thematic residency and exhibition project organized by the ODD Gallery and KIAC’s Artist in Residence program, The Natural & The Manufactured presents site-specific exhibitions by internationally recognized artists Peter von Tiesenhausen and Shirley Wiebe, and a lecture and essay by art historian Dr. Gerard Curtis.

Through exhibitions, artist’s talks and outreach activities, The Natural & The Manufactured presents contemporary site-specific and land based art practices to Yukon and visiting audiences. The project as a whole is intended to stimulate and engage people in a re-examination of the various cultural and economic values imposed on the environment, while exploring alternative political, social, economic and aesthetic agendas and strategies towards a re-interpretation of the regional landscape and social infrastructure.

Responding to the local environment, histories and cultures Peter von Tiesenhausen has produced a gallery-specific installation utilizing locally available natural and found materials during a ten-day residency. In counterpoint Shirley Wiebe has produced an outdoor site-specific installation using locally sourced manufactured products during her four-week residency. Within the context of these exhibitions visiting art historian Dr. Gerard Curtis will deliver a lecture addressing recent histories and current trends of site-specific, land based, and environmental art practices, including the work of von Tiesenhausen and Wiebe.

Conceived as a speculative research and presentation forum, the N&M looks to the myriad ways in which we both influence and are influenced by our natural and constructed environments.

The Natural & The Manufactured 2011: Platform 02— the ODD Gallery’s 7th annual edition of the project—features five prolific artists, writers and thinkers whose work and research shares an ongoing fascination with ideas of landscape, place and the environment. As the final component of our two-platform N&M series (the first, The Creation of Evolution, was a group show in June-July), the ODD Gallery is pleased to present two interactive public installations by Steve Badgett & Deborah Stratman (Chicago), a gallery exhibition of sculptures and watercolour paintings by Bill Burns (Toronto), a lecture by Parks Canada historian David Neufeld (Whitehorse), and a commissioned critical text by writer Megan Graham (Dawson). These projects collectively look at the connections between economics, cultural production and the natural world.

Through a rich program of exhibitions, installations, actions, lectures and essays, The Natural & The Manufactured endeavours to engage both artists and audiences in a re-examination of the cultural, physical and economic values imposed on the environment. This project seeks to explore alternative political, social and aesthetic agendas and strategies towards a reinterpretation and new understanding of our relationship to the environment and our social infrastructure: the indelible ways in which our natural landscapes influence, inspire and sustain us, and conversely the ways in which our perceptions of- and actions upon- these landscapes directly impact the environment itself.

_____________________________

The Natural & The Manufactured is a unique thematic project jointly organized by the ODD Gallery and the Artist in Residence Program at the Klondike Institute of Art & Culture. Conceived as a speculative research and presentation forum, the N&M looks to the myriad ways in which we both influence and are influenced by our natural and constructed environments.

The ODD Gallery is pleased to present The Natural & The Manufactured 2010 , the sixth incarnation of our annual thematic exhibition and research project dedicated to the exploration of our cultural, economic and aesthetic conceptions of environment, locality and landscape.

Through a series of exhibitions, actions, writings, artist talks, lectures and concerts, the N&M 2010 offers a set of speculative propositions toward a new framework of regarding the ongoing barter between our reliance on natural, often fragile, ecological systems and inherent necessity of socialization.

Although extremely diverse in conception and design, the projects share a fascination with ideas of impermanence, translocality and temporal anachromism. Subverting our normalized, staid binaries of nature and culture, wilderness and constructed environment, or even organic and inorganic, the N&M 2010 projects suggest that our current locale and landscape–perhaps even our current moment–are perhaps best viewed as a near simultaneous overlapping of interests and interactions, rather than a regulated system of  certainties and definitions. As such, the projects posit the Natural and Manufactured elements of life as non-static events, a dispursal, a constant negotiation. A placeless place, a timeless time, a zone where the instability of social reality can offer ideas for change, innovation, inspiration and resistance.

_____________________________

The Natural & The Manufactured 2009 consists of two exhibition projects,  a participatory community action project , and a public lecture and commissioned essay which, among other things, are linked by the thematic rubric of the “mediated landscape,” the ways in which technology and mapping underscore our relationship to the land, as well as the ways in which our own  subjectivity, social structures and sense of community are impacted.

Working through the KIAC Artist in Residence program, artists Stephen Kelly (Halifax, NS) and Brandon  Vickerd (Toronto, ON) will be living and working in the Macaulay House to develop their individual installations in the weeks leading up to the launch of this project. Joining the duo is writer and theorist Dr. Jeanne Randolph (Winnipeg, MB), who will be traveling to Dawson City to undertake a public lecture and begin writing a response to the project, which will be published after the opening, and artist Harrell Fletcher (Portland, OR) who will be leading a participatory lecture-walk throughout Dawson City.

Through the exhibitions, actions, artist talks, essays and lecture, The Natural & The Manufactured 2009 will engage artists and audiences in a re-examination of the various cultural and economic values imposed on the environment, while exploring alternative political, social, economic and aesthetic agendas and strategies towards a re-interpretation of the regional landscape and social infrastructure.

_____________________________

A thematic residency and exhibition project organized by the ODD Gallery and KIAC’s Artist in Residence program, The Natural & The Manufactured 2008 will see an expanded line-up of project activities with solo exhibitions by artists Toni Hafkenscheid, Max Liboiron and Joan Scaglione, along with contributions from theorist and writer Ted Hiebert ,and writer and critic John K. Grande.

Through the exhibitions, artist talks, essays and lecture, The Natural & The Manufactured 2008 will engage artists and audiences in a re-examination of the various cultural and economic values imposed on the environment, while exploring alternative political, social, economic and aesthetic agendas and strategies towards a re-interpretation of the regional landscape and social infrastructure.

The year’s project opens with a solo exhibition of Toni Hafkenscheid’s landscape series HO that is accompanied by a commissioned essay by Ted Hiebert. Hafkenscheid’s exhibition is followed with two site-specific exhibitions in August by Max Liboiron & Joan Scaglione, each being developed and produced during the artists’ six-week KIAC Residencies. In conjunction with Liboiron and Scaglione’s exhibitions, Montreal-based writer John K. Grande will travel to Dawson to present a lecture addressing recent histories and current trends of site-specific, land based, and environmental art practices, based on his extensive work in this field, and has been commissioned to write a post-exhibition essay addressing and reflecting on the work of Liboiron and Scaglione.
