Though necessary for living, our memories are duplicitous. They can be like fire – bold or burning us up with longing or regret – or like frost – giving us either pause for quiet reflection or chilling us to the bone. The Alberta Foundation for the Arts Travelling Exhibition …fire and frost explores memory; presenting the work of three contemporary artists who, through the lens of a camera or mixed media expressions, document past and present experiences, objects and places to capture time and awaken memories that are universal in nature.
The artists whose works are presented in the exhibition …fire and frost devote much of their creativity to exploring ‘place’: focusing on urban landscapes and family narratives, structures and their interrelationships with the natural environment, or the history of specific places and the personal memories evoked by this ‘documentation’.
The exhibition and frost was curated by Shane Golby and organized by the Art Gallery of Alberta for the Alberta Foundation for the Arts Travelling Exhibition Program.
