The Slingshot assemblage of social fugitives is pleased to present themselves and an exhibition of their artwork, put together in the temporary space (entitled Slingshot) on Valencia. Opening is November 1st from 6-8pm and will be open for two months.
Launa Bacon’s work is middlebrow, low-def and “creepy.” Her work is often an examination of the narratives that shape female identity.
Meagan Donegan is a twin and she uses her art to process the emotional implication of that and other relationships. Her work is a series of meditative endeavours, a break down of layers of a collected spectrum to search for an identity outside of these connections and investigate an idea of “ontological singularity.”
Kimberlee Koym uses collected, everyday objects and video projection to create installations that examine the permeability of physical and psychological boundaries – with a focus on resiliency and translucency.
Angela Simione uses the methods of erasure to create her own "redacted" documents, making metaphors for the experiences of loss. Simione presents fragments, tiny bits of evidence, allusions to a lost history.
Freya Prowe’s work is lyrical, dark and draws upon the tradition of European fairy tales of her childhood. Prowe creates images that playfully prey upon the duality inherent in human interactions.
