Seachange - An Art Exhibit

Looking for something different,...try Seachange....

CACGV Gallery at the Cedar Hill Recreation Centre
3220 Cedar Hill Road

runs Tuesday evening, March 27 until Sunday, April 1st
Opening reception - Thursday night, March 29th 7 pm

Seachange transforms the gallery into a drowned post-global-warming living room now overgrown by a "coral reef" of creatures created entirely from recycled clothing and household junk. The work is composed of hundreds of individual corals, "fish", and bizarre marine creatures fabricated from doilies, hair curlers, brushes, plastic scrubbing pads, feathers, bath mats, shower caps, baseball cap mesh, crocheted tuques, plastic "jelly" sandals and other cast-offs--there's even a boys' rigid black plastic athletic cup "crustacean." The breeze from an electric fan keeps the plastic shower cap medusas and the feathery tendrils of the reef gently moving. In short, lots of fun!

The installation is made up of hundreds of component parts, mostly held together with unseen straight pins, so it takes several days to create this magical little world. Surreal, gently thought-provoking, and quite lovely, this particular work is, to quote one reviewer, "so damn much fun to look at."
