Present Junction Gallery presents Planeterrarea: Field of View - a site-specific exhibition at The University of Toronto’s Planetarium that features installation and drawings by Baltimore-based artist, Cindy Cheng and audio/visuals by Dr. Michael Williams with The University of Toronto’s Planetarium and Terrarea, a Toronto-based art collective, comprised of Janis Demkiw, Emily Hogg and Olia Mishchenko.
Planeterrarea: Field of View is motivated by the parallels we find in Cindy and Terrarea’s work, namely, in their use and arrangement of like materials. However, while Cindy’s work serves as a collapsible crystallization of her internal universe combining memories of real landscapes with the alien vistas of daydreams, Terrarea treats the components of their projects as agents that animate fields. Interested in showing their work together in an observatory-like environment, we expanded our concept to invite Michael to collaborate with Terrarea and produce audio visuals for projection in the Planetarium. By projecting imagery reminiscent of vast planetary systems and galaxies obstructed and accented by reflectors and reflections, the audio/visuals function as a circumambience encapsulating Cindy’s installation.
