Eugene Park

Arrival / Stranding
Aug. 4, 2018 to Sept. 1, 2018

The gallery is pleased to present a solo exhibition of works by Eugene Park, the recipient of the 2018 Sylvie and Simon Blais Award for Emerging Visual Artists. The exhibition, Arrival / Stranding, will include intallatives pieces. Eugene Park creates installations using unconventional materials, letting their inherent powers permeate a space. By focusing on objects and their behaviours, she hopes to reveal the stories of those objects, which are not yet “living.”

“ Park uses flimsy, natural materials like stone, clay or wax—employed since ancient times—combined with mineral substances like iron powder, steel and concrete. Added to the mix are the tools, such as rulers, levels, sandpaper and compasses, used to build and link the structures of our everyday lives. Through repeated actions imbuing wear, time and movement, the artist probes the invisible relationships between objects. She is especially interested in the interactions between materials and the implements that are capable of adjusting or activating geological, electromagnetic, or chemical properties.” (Milly-Alexandra Dery)
