Hunting Grounds marks a place of isolation, revelation, and psychic connection. Incorporating drawing, sculpture, ceramics, installation and stop-motion video, it is a decidedly old-school endeavour. It is unabashedly sentimental, exploratory, and curious — it’s an acid trip in the woods, a post-apocalyptic hike to higher ground, the discovery of a new species in your backyard.
✖ Artists ✖
Natasha Broad, alias Maus Hunt, makes work that highlights relationships in the natural world. She is best known for her whooping cranes, drawn large-scale and conceived to raise awareness about the cranes’ endangerment by the Alberta tar sands.
Vanessa Brown is an interdisciplinary artist whose practice spans painting, sculpture, installation, and video mediums. Her work is feral, romantic, and enigmatic.
Julie Dives an enthusiasm for taxidermy into a sculptural practice that explores ideas of hybridity, memento, and beauty in death.
Emily Luddington is a ceramicist whose experimental works draw inspiration from the minutiae of natural forms such as honeycomb, algae, and coral.
Alex M.F. Quicho makes large-scale graphite drawings that use natural and architectural structures to explore themes of survival, memory, violence, and isolation.
Fiona Tan makes dynamic, gestural work that brings human and animal subjects together in strange tensions. We will be showing a stop-motion video of her energetic drawing process.
Danielle Magee, alias Moses Magee, creates impossible landscapes and mirages using drawing, printed matter and collage. Hypnotic and seductive, her work emulates mystifying encounters of the natural kind while creating an awareness of the urban ecosystem.
Daniel Marcus Tatterton, alias DMT, makes drawings and prints which are hallucinatory, maze-like, and packed with survival structures and occult characters. These are often installed in altar-like format together with gathered materials and small hand-made objects.
