Exhibition

Artspace presents Opening Reception: "Bait" by Couzyn van Heuvelen

Date:Friday, September 13, 2019
Time:6 p.m.
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. Exhibit runs from September 13 - October 19.
