DESCRIPTION

Fictions and Legends highlights the imaginative worlds embodied in the work of Heather Goodchild and Jérôme Havre, two artists who use visual storytelling to invent biographical and mythical histories that hint at the presence of secret societies and systems of belief, mystical practices and alternative cultural codes. Integrating diverse materials and practices including sewing, rug hooking, drawing, photography and sculpture, both artists tease out our deepest collective cultural experiences, practices and beliefs by proposing evocative truths in the form of fictions and legends.

The exhibition is organized by the Textile Museum of Canada with the support of the Anne Angus Contemporary Program Fund.
