+15 WINDOW EXHIBITION
DECEMBER 1997 – JANUARY, 1998
RECEPTION: THURSDAY, DECEMBER 11, 1997 AT 8 PM
LOCATION – CALGARY CENTRE FOR PERFORMING ARTS
225, 8th Avenue S.E, CALGARY, ALBERTA
Carl Danker, Mary Kim, and Angela Yee are three emerging artists whose work discusses the complexities of Asian-Canadian identity. Carl Danker’s installation, site/sight PROJECTIONS investigates identity by projecting the words Shadow, Shroud, Shade, Shield, and Shirt onto plain white t-shirts which hang off a line within the window. The words refer to different states of being or consciousness as well as the perceived need to assimilate to one’s surroundings.
May Kim will present a ceramic tea/chess set comprised of several pawns that relate to traditional Korean women’s dress. Her work, Servitude, comments on women’s position in Korean patriarchal culture.
Anglea Yee’s most recent work involves notions of escape. In I have a second face in addition to the first. And perhaps also a third., Angela constructs digital, fictitious landscapes that lead her away from her somewhat stereotypically defined social, sexual, and racial position within Western culture.
The artists will exhibit their work in Stride, Truck, and The New Gallery +15 window spaces.
