Kristiina Lahde: ULTRA-PARALLEL. Curator: Mona Filip ... more
Kristiina Lahde: ULTRA-PARALLEL. Curator: Mona Filip.
Toronto artist Kristiina Lahde alters and re-formats ordinary objects and materials through a process of geometric re-organization in which measurement and pattern play a significant role. Finding the overlooked potential of envelopes, newspapers, telephone books and measuring tapes, Lahde manipulates and de-familiarizes them in ways that shift, expand, invert, or otherwise transform their internal logic. Recently, she has been systematically re-formatting measuring tools, cutting and reconfiguring measuring tapes and rulers using precise calculations, geometric shapes and patterns. For ULTRA-PARALLEL, her solo show at the Koffler Gallery, Lahde expands her work to large scale and into the use of three-dimensional space. The new body of work engages with the architecture of the site, investigating tension, gravity, angles, parallel lines and crossing perspectives.

Amanda Nedham: a dog is short a car is long.
Amanda Nedham stages prolonged encounters with things usually avoided. Her carefully conceived, exquisitely crafted drawings and installations are a point of entry into parallel worlds of quietus and remembrance. "I am interested in the contemporary artefact, familiar animals and objects re-cast and re-defined through webs of alternative associations." Station Gallery is proud to host Nedham's first public gallery exhibition following the completion of her graduate studies at RISD in Providence, Rhode Island. This show celebrates a coming-in-full-circle moment in the artist's creative life path. As it turns out, guess where the artist received her formative artistic training...
