Carrie Allison, Displaced, 2017
Carrie Allison: clearing
clearing brings together Displaced, Carrie Allison’s 2017 watercolour and ephemeral ink drawings, and her new work Plot, a series of beaded portraits of grass. Using landscape imagery, botanical studies and the symbolism of institutional collection and preservation, Allison contemplates what is lost and found through the consumption and commodification of land. In conjunction with the exhibition, Allison will host public events and workshops as part of her summer residency at MSVU Art Gallery.
