This Thursday evening, slip into the twilight of Cultivating Equilibrium, Patrick Campbell and Madison Killo’s transformative installation in the Unit/Pitt gallery space. The artists have taken the already transplanted, absurd, and strange site of the Bloedel Conservatory, which rests as a crystalline tropicalia at the top of Vancouver’s Little Mountain, and transmitted the immersive environment into the equally fantastical space of the gallery.
Seeking to engage and disorient on multiple sensorial levels, the exhibition constructs the space according to an underlying logic that is alternatively attuned and awry with the natural. Brynn McNab has contributed a piece of writing that engages the space in a site / non-site relationship. Drop in, sip a cocktail, breathe the air, and adjust your eyes. Opens at 7pm.
Madison Killo is an artist and curator living in Vancouver, Canada. She received her BFA from Emily Carr University of Art and Design in 2014. In December 2014, she curated the exhibition ‘Beginning the Shape’ at the Or Gallery. Through sculptural installations, her work architects atmospheres through the lens of existential, metaphysical and ontological affects. Structured through a theoretical and meditative process, they focus on the presentation of space as platform for experience.
Patrick Campbell is an artist and curator based in Vancouver, Canada. He received his BFA from Emily Carr in 2010. His work highlights and acknowledges the presence of societal histories. Informed by his formal training in photography, he seeks to preserve the lasting ephemera of these architectures. His practice often uses traditional cinematic modes of production – situated in installations that enhance the construction of place. The content of his work mediates between the public and the private, structuring narratives around fragments of the every day.
