Artspace presents "Bait" by Couzyn van Heuvelen

Date:Until Saturday, October 19, 2019
Location:    Artspace (378 Aylmer St. N., Peterborough)
Couzyn van Heuvelen’s work is a reinterpretation and reimagining of Inuit hunting and fishing implements. The sculptural works draw upon the artist’s relationship to Inuit tradition and land-based material culture and technology. Through his artistic process, the artist manipulates material - aluminum, glass, steel - to elaborate and distinguish the unique aesthetics and creative currency derived from utilitarian objects that define the maker. BAIT is a platform for the artist to further investigate his relationships and lived experience of his culture and identity through rendered artworks related to Inuit survival and sovereignty. Opening Reception: September 13 at 6 p.m
