MFA THESIS EXHIBITION: FELT/FELT

April 24, 2017

MFA Thesis Exhibition: felt/felt

Gales Gallery, Accolade West (89 York Blvd.), York University

April 24 - May 5, 2017

Reception: Friday April 28th, 6-9pm

The sculptural investigations in this exhibition explore a relationship between sensorial bodily experience and psychological state. Large-scale industrial felt sculptures use space and form, with a particular interest in solitude, slowness, and sensory perception, to engender a gradual shift in consciousness through physiological engagement. The sculptures use processes such as wrapping, binding, and hanging, working with industrial felt’s disposition and navigating between asserting rigour and relinquishing control to develop form. The geometries that arise have a certain minimal formal austerity while embracing felt’s subtle yet irrepressible unruliness. There is a conversation between material, form, and experience in each of these works.
