Jane Kidd, Curiosities Series: Pairing #4 2016
23 Jun 2018 – 26 Aug 2018

Organized by Kelowna Art Gallery

Kidd is one of Canada’s preeminent artists working in textile. She lives in Salt Spring Island. The exhibition encompasses the tapestry series Curiosities, Wonderland, Land Sentence and Possession. In nightmarish visions of genetic modification, Curiosities depicts parts of various organisms spliced together to form alluring chimeras. The shaped weavings of Land Sentence are based on satellite photographs of environmental devastation, executed in the toxic palette of the computer screen. Kidd’s commitment to handwork in realizing these images of technology run amok is remarkably apt.

A catalogue with an essay by Amy Gogarty accompanies the exhibition, together with a sample tapestry fragment for tactile exploration.

ARTIST TALK Saturday, 23 June at 2-4pm
Jane Kidd will present an informal talk about her work followed by a relaxed reception.

American Sign Language interpretation is available for all public programs. Please contact the Art Gallery (art.gallery@msvu.ca) by June 11 to request.
