Margins of Memory / Trames de mémoire

March 14, 1998 - April 26, 1998


Curator:
Year 1998 Theme Drawing & Printmaking, Feminisms, Gender & Sexuality, Textiles

Organized around themes of memory and corporeality, Margins of Memory included works by the Canadian artists Dominique Blain, Cathy Daley, Aganetha Dyck, Faye HeavyShield, Patrick Traer, and Evelyn von Michalofski. Though sculpture predominated, even the two-dimensional works projected an assertive, spatial presence. The artists shared a tendency to present clothing in place of the figure, in formats ranging from Dyck’s collaboration with bees to “embalm” articles of dress, to Blain’s display of military helmets as objects for contemplation.

Curator Renee Baert wrote in the bilingual catalogue that “these mnemonic materializations return us to the experience of bodies and beings that are culturally imprinted, psychically constructed and irreducibly mortal.”
