Arteries: January 2015

By Genevieve Michaels

VANCOUVER —

Oddities – Gallery Gachet – Opens January 9, 7 p.m.

Society has always attempted to close off and classify its weirdos and outliers, whether in the curiosity cabinets of the eighteenth century or the modern-day Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders. As an artist-run centre “committed to demystifying and challenging issues related to mental health and social marginalization,” Gallery Gachet is positioned to question the validity of these labels and whether they can be subverted or used in a positive way.

Josema Zamorano – Back Gallery Project – Opens January 14, 6-8 p.m.

The frenetic energy of a Marrakesh marketplace is expressed through photography in this solo show. By allowing his images to blur into abstraction, Zamorano produces photographs that, from far away, could almost be Abstract Expressionist paintings. The famous market square in question is, as a tourist attraction, constantly being photographed. One has to wonder if Zamorano’s work might, in its scrambled washes of colour, better convey the experience of the bustling square than the tourists with their snapshots.

Bugs – Western Front – First Screening January 16, 7 p.m.

Bugs is a feature-length film produced by Toronto performance art collective Life of a Craphead. Accompanying the screening is a large-scale installation made in collaboration with Laura McCoy, a Toronto-based media artist. The film is “a modern-day fable about a bug society that expresses satirical ideas about success and individualism within a fantasy world.” Life of a Craphead is composed of Toronto artists Amy Lam and John McCurley. Most of their work, which has included the construction of a three story maze and giving away everything on a restaurant’s menu, has a “humourous DIY ethos.”

No Monologue – 221A – Opens January 16, 7 p.m.

This group show will centre around a 24-ft. long table installed in the centre of the gallery space. The work will examine and react to the social significance of the long table as it relates to congregation and collaboration. The long table can be a place of celebration, commerce, or negotiation. The show will include work by artists such as Dustin Brons, Gabi Dao, Scott Kemp, and Kara Hansen.

Omer Arbel – Monte Clark Gallery – Opens January 31, 2-4 p.m.

Well-known local architect and industrial designer Omer Arbel’s sculpture will be exhibited in this solo show. The exhibition will be comprised of two families of sculpture, born from the repurposing of an industrial production technique and its endless repetition of extended intervals of time.
