Vancouver Draw Down

Sat 20 Jun 2015 4–5:30PM

The Chamber: Ian Johnston

Instructor: Alex M.F. Quicho

Join a time-based drawing workshop led by Alex M.F. Quicho and explore artist Ian Johnston’s installation ‘The Chamber’. The Chamber is an enormous inflating and deflating installation that shrouds and reveals an enormous mass of discarded household items diverted from what the artist terms “the waste stream.” Mesmerizing and sobering, The Chamber suggests to viewers, as Johnston states, “the paradoxical relationship between limited resources and seemingly unlimited appetite.”


Alex M.F. Quicho (b. 1990, Boston, USA) is an artist and writer from Manila, Philippines. Her works in graphite approach decolonization, dystopia, paranoia, and female agency, among other things. She is the creative director and founder of Highway, a publication for experimental culture.
