To find the ocean, artwork by Tara CooperThe summer exhibition at the Kitchener Waterloo Art Gallery (KWAG) premieres new work by six artists based in Waterloo Region and Wellington County –

Tara Cooper (Fine Arts faculty),
Hyang Cho,
Meg Harder (Alumna BA 2013),
Žana Kozomora (Alumna BA 2015),
Amanda Rhodenizer (Alumna MFA 2014),
Aislinn Thomas (Alumna MFA 2016).

The Brain is wider than the Sky (curated by Crystal Mowry) features "correspondence" as the central theme woven through each of the works selected for this exhibition.  The exhibition runs from July 18, 2018 to September 23, 2018
 
For Tara Cooper, installation is a practice parallel to that of a travelogue and creates an archive of a place one can never truly know. In Žana Kozomora’s new works, the artist returns to her childhood home in Sarajevo and reconsiders it through a tourist’s perspective. Through figuration and staged interactions in vacation homes, painter Amanda Rhodenizer explores the distance – both physical and emotional – that separates her subjects. For Hyang Cho, a misdelivered letter inspired a new project wherein correspondence and translation are redefined. Drawing inspiration from “fraktur” (a traditional Mennonite form of illuminated folk art), Meg Harder proposes an epic narrative set along the banks of an infinite river. Accounts of a contemporary celestial event are gathered by Aislinn Thomas and can be understood as a people’s history of the sublime
