Just a phantom: a borderless shadow
Until August 14th
Mere Phantoms is a partnership between Maya Elsan and Jamie Robson, an artist who explores the relationship between memory and architecture, people and places using shadow play. For her 2018 work ShadowsWithoutBorders, the duo visited refugee camps, squats and settlements in Athens and Istanbul. She led a paper-cutting and shadow workshop there with her children and family. Some of the works created during this trip are included in the exhibition along with a 3.5x3.5 meter shadow projection tent and a custom made flashlight. During the exhibition, visitors can work on the artwork by adding their own cutouts to a growing interactive installation, picking up a flashlight and animating a complex paper tableau. I can do it. The simultaneous exhibition of the gallery includes ARTS 2022. This is an annual jury exhibition of local art hosted by the Sally Arts Council. Atheana Picha: Echoes, a window mural celebrating a coastal indigenous goat horn bracelet. Charles Campbell: Black Breath Archive, an audiovisual exhibition by an artist from Jamaica based in Victoria.

This international group show explores the relationship between humans, technology and ecology. The work includes a new commission by Case Wyss (Skwxwú7mesh). It consists of a garden project in the gallery, where the artist takes care of the plants throughout the show. An augmented reality experience by Tracey Kim Bonneau (Syilx) will be presented in the garden. Other works include No Man II from HoTzu Nyen in Singapore. This is an installation featuring dozens of human, beast, and hybrid avatars, citing John Donne's poem No Man Is a Island. In her self-portrait, New York-based Juliana Hakustable pretends to be trans-species. Berlin-based Andukhe Jordan's Jiggy and Starfish are interactive sculptures modeled after the top of a wave, covered in blue shag carpet. Other artists include Shanghai-based up-and-coming international art star Lu Yang. His work was last seen at The Polygon's Fall 2020 Exhibition Third Realm. There is also Montreal-based artist Skawennati.
