Christiane Poulin, Winds of Change: A Lace-scape 2016
Exhibitions in the Prospect series introduce artists in the early phases of their careers. A retired physician, Poulin recently graduated from NSCAD with a BFA in Textiles and the 2017 Starfish Student Art Award. She lives in Halifax. The woven structures of her site-oriented installation allude to Brutalist design integrated into a landscape. Viewers are prompted to perceive the analogies between weaving and architecture, in particular the aesthetics of béton brut. Like her award-winning Winds of Change: a Lace-scape, Echoes plays with the effects of light and shadow. The components of the installation are touchable.
Visitors are invited to interact with a compact four-harness hand-loom in an adjacent room.
