Natalie Hunter (MFA 2013) was awarded a commission from the City of Kitchener to create a public art piece.
This led her on an eight-month exploration to get a sense of Bridgeport, a historic village within Kitchener, the community and the relationship between memory and place. The result is Pieces of Light, an installation of translucent backlit panels of layered images for the Bridgeport Community Centre. The images, installed June 10, are intended to reflect the community.
More work from this series can be seen until July 29 at Open Sesame, a gallery and bookstore adjacent Kitchener City Hall.
