LandMarks is a network of collaborative, contemporary art projects across Canada’s national parks on the 150th anniversary of Canadian Confederation. Under the umbrella of the LandMarks project, students in this studio course have spent the semester exploring our complex relationship to the local landscape from many perspectives. Their multidisciplinary works aim to foster a dialogue about our collective histories and shared futures.
Reception & informal discussion: Tues 7 March, 5:30 – 7:30PM
In Winter 2016, students in Barbara Lounder’s Foundation Constructed Forms class worked with used furniture provided by the Habitat for Humanity Nova Scotia ReStore. Over a period of several weeks, the students reinvented these objects as artworks. Their goal was to explore the practical and conceptual potential for reworking existing forms, and to help raise awareness about the need for good, affordable housing in our communities. Pieces by Alex Bar, Gina Brigante, Harry Cotaras, Chloe Elgie, Mackenzie Graves, Chelsea Innes, Kaya Karpinska, Jay Merriott and Kat Savoie are featured in ReWork.
