The SPAO Centre Gallery proudly presents
Intimate Textures of the Digital World
featuring the photo-based work of
Jaad Kuujus (Meghann O’Brien)
The artists in the exhibition negotiate between digital and physical spaces, continually asking viewers to orient themselves between physicality and abstraction. The artworks capture a tactile and sensory subject matter, despite the mediation of the lens in two-dimensions. Viewers are encouraged to explore intimate conversations of metamorphosis, belonging, and manual labour while also discovering their place between reality and virtuality.
Intimate Textures of the Digital World asks the viewer to envelop themselves in virtual possibilities, and consider our intertwined daily experiences.
Exhibition Runs September 3 – October 31, 2021
Gallery Hours: Wednesday – Sunday, 12pm – 5pm
