Originally an installation and film, EDM House was commissioned by Fogo Island Arts and completed during a 2013 residency there. The film version of the work presents a cabin in the snow-covered, mountainous woods of northern BC, covered in strings of coloured lights that pulsate and flicker in rhythm with an EDM soundtrack composed by Schmidt. Like past works Fog (2004), Burning Bush (2005), Wild Signals (2007), and especially Long Beach Led Zep (2002), EDM House demonstrates Schmidt’s unique ability to balance his interest in the sublime with a sly sense of humour.MORE

Artistic and literary works are the starting point for Romanian artist Mureşan who appropriates them in a reflective project that intersects with the recent history of Romania and other Eastern European countries and more generally ponders the realities of the contemporary world often with an understated, wry humour. These negatives were taken from his remake/ homage of Yves Klein’s Saut dans le vides (1960) where the artist lays flat in melancholy rather than seen optimistically mid-air.
One of the most significant artists of his generation, solo exhibitions include Recycled Playground, Contemporary Art Gallery, Vancouver; the Centre d’Art Contemporain, Geneva and FRAC Champagne-Ardenne, Reims; Ciprian Mureşan and Tomáš Svoboda, Futura Centre for Contemporary Art, Prague Ciprian Mureşan, the Neuer Berliner Kunstverein, Berlin.MORE

Kay Rosen makes use of words and their font in order to explore the ways in which knowledge is structured by language. She is interested in how language can evoke thought on its own by treating each letter as a body part. In this way, Kay Rosen is less concerned with neither explicit political messages nor the intrusion of the artist’s voice so as to allow the letters themselves to subvert verbal systems of power. The six conceptual and formal strategies employed by the artist include colour, sound, anti-grammar, letters, systems and patterns, and graphics. The Contemporary Art Gallery Vancouver held a Kay Rosen exhibition between June 28th and November 3rd, 2013. This particular edition allows viewers to encounter language and type as both something to be read and something to be seen.
Love Letter, 1/20/2009, commemorates the inauguration of Barack Obama as president of the United States on January 20, 2009. Love Letter continues a theme formerly used in the Klosterfelde edition O (1999), whose nine titles range from “Open” to “Halo,” in which O functions as a visual object as well as a letter. The edition Stilllife with Blue Table (Earthquake) (2007) slyly contains an O which behaves as an orange and a letter. As letters and symbols, the O’s and X’s in Love Letter are semi-abstract and universal, transcending language’s meaning and syntax. They may be considered ciphers or stand-ins for other things. For example, the O’s might represent Obama, with the X’s the alternative that is rejected. X’s and O’s might represent hugs and kisses, an affectionate way of signing off a letter. Just as a previous generation was designated X, the current state of mind is resoundingly O. The beauty of these letters is their ability to transform themselves, making many interpretations possible.
KAY ROSEN WOULD LIKE TO QUALIFY HER EDITION “LOVE LETTER, 1/20/2009 ” TO PRESIDENT OBAMA. WHILE PRESIDENT OBAMA HAS DONE SOME GOOD THINGS, HE HAS FALLEN FAR SHORT OF BEING THE TRANSFORMATIVE PRESIDENT THAT HIS CAMPAIGN RHETORIC PROMISED. INSTEAD HE HAS SHOWN THAT HE IS SIMPLY A TALENTED POLITICIAN.MORE

This limited edition print was produced to coincide with the exhibitions Aurorae at the Contemporary Art Gallery, Vancouver and Via Lactea (above Glacier Lake) at Yaletown-Roundhouse Station, Vancouver, February 3 to July 1, 2012.Archival inkjet print, limited edition of 15.
In Via Lactea (above Glacier Lake) Massey deftly combines 171 narrow-field photographs of the night sky on the same strip of film, achieved by making minor adjustments to camera angle over a lengthy period of time. Even though the image is artificially constructed, the luminous pattern of the starry nighttime sky retains its convincingly poetic expanse while throwing into question the veracity of the photographic image. Its blueness is much closer to that of a daytime sky.MORE

Forced through financial constraints to assemble furniture from the walls of their individual accommodations, these renters sacrifice more and more privacy as they cannibalize their dwellings for creature comforts. Pauwel’s bookwork was displayed in an installation designed by the artist in an exhibition at the Contemporary Art Gallery. Illustrations by Aaron Carpenter and Tyler Brett.
