Exhibition curated by Whitney Brennan

Feathers, Ether, Sand, Speech presents a selection of contemporary Vancouver artists working at the intersection of performance and media art, and exploring sites of contested gender representation: the cinema, the landscape and the strip club. Lauren Marsden, Elizabeth Milton and Sydney Southam explore the presence and absence of the body to articulate their concerns surrounding labour, materiality and documentation. In challenging the voyeurship that surrounds female performance art, the artists present alternative perspectives that emphasize not the physical body, but its absence.

With support from the Killy Foundation and the Audain Endowment for Curatorial Studies through the Department of Art History, Visual Art and Theory in collaboration with the Morris and Helen Belkin Art Gallery at The University of British Columbia.
