Arteries: June 2015

By Kaelan Unrau

ARTERIES Architecture by Artists caption_ _Still from video, Parade (2013), Oliver Husain_VANCOUVER —

Lara Favaretto – Rennie Collection – May 30 to October 3

Lara Favaretto finds inspiration in the mundane. In her first-ever Canadian solo exhibition, the Italian artist employs colourful confetti, lost luggage and other found objects to emphasize the absurdities of everyday life. Bright, playful and bizarre, these works illustrate the proposition that only bores get bored.

Garry Neill Kennedy: Drawings – Charles H. Scott Gallery, Emily Carr University – June 3 to July 5

From 1967 to 1990, Garry Neill Kennedy served as president of the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design; and to stave off the bureaucratic boredom, the Ontario-born artist began amassing an impressive collection of napkin-based material. With Drawings, Emily Carr’s Charles H. Scott Gallery brings together a veritable surfeit of Kennedy’s sketches, diagrams, outlines, drafts, ideas, plans, letters, daydreams, scribbles, memos, missives and much, much more.

TexTILES – Silk Weaving Studio – June 4 to July 4    

With summer looming on the horizon, we can look forward to T-shirts, stoop beers and TexTILES – Vancouver’s favourite silk-based art event. Put on by Vancouver’s Weaving Studio, the month-long exhibition features an ‘unbeweavable’ array of artists and artworks. Last year’s focus was the “text” half of “textiles.” This year, tiles form the common thread.

Architecture by Artists – 221A – June 6 to July 25

In Architecture by Artists, four artists – Hannah Heilmann (Denmark), Oliver Hussain (Canada/Germany) and the dance duo of Gerald & Kelly (USA) – explore the nature and function of physical space. Divided into three parts, the interdisciplinary exhibit will feature a vanishing pop-up shop, an interactive “research space” and a critical investigation of artistic failure.

Ian Johnston: The Chamber – Access Gallery – June 6 to July 18

An exercise in space and materiality, The Chamber – a large-scale installation by Nelson-based sculptor Ian Johnston – betrays the artist’s architectural background. For some, it’s just a giant, inflatable bag, puffing away like Godzilla’s disembodied lung. For others, it’s a subtle commentary on contemporary society – the contradiction between finite resources and insatiable consumption.
