Monday, May 10, 2021

The Department of Fine Arts and UWAG (University of Waterloo Art Gallery) present the secono thesis exhibitions by Master of Fine Arts (MFA) candidates from the graduate program in Fine Arts at the University of Waterloo. MFA Thesis gives the campus and community-at-large an opportunity to see the end result of two years of intensive research and studio production by emerging visual artists.

The exhibition features video installations and text presented at the University of Waterloo Art Gallery, and works developed on-site in Trois-Rivières, Quebec.

The exhibition “opens" on the UWAG website May 13.

In Places Rarely Seen

In Places Rarely Seen is an interdisciplinary exhibition bringing together print installation, video, photography, sound and text. The exhibition considers my own shifting perception of what Nature is and how I relate to it as a man from a Québécois background. This shift is informed by my lived experiences and practice based research which has led me to questions of what it means to create ecologically focused art, temporal investigations, inquiries into Indigenous ways of knowing Nature and land, as well as the similarities and differences between art and science.

Jordan Blackburn is a Franco-Albertan artist working in Trois-Rivières, QC while pursuing an MFA degree with the University of Waterloo. Since completing a BFA in Interdisciplinary Fine Art at NSCAD University he has shown work both nationally and internationally and has received a number of awards for his research around complex relationships between human beings and Nature, such the Joseph-Armand Bombardier Canada Graduate Scholarship.
