July 2 to September 8, 2019
In this collaborative exhibition, artists Nicholas Crombach and Nurielle Stern explore subject matter derived from the complex, problematic and often mythologized human relationship to the natural world. The centerpiece of their exhibition is Whale Fall, a large sculptural work consisting of an assemblage of furniture and added ceramic components. The work alludes to a decaying whale carcass, providing a visceral visual metaphor for accumulation, loss and the passage of time.
The artists acknowledge the support of the Ontario Arts Council.
