Kassandra Graham – Un espace/ de mémoire (A place/ from memory)
February 13 to April 19, 2020
Opening: Thursday, February 13, 5:30 to 7:30 pm
Tour with the artist (bilingual): Friday, February 14, 12:30 pm
The title A place/ from memory can refer to two separate things, namely the places produced from memory and the places generated
from memories. In the first case, fragments of memory construct the
place. In the second case, the place causes memories to resurface. My
installation can therefore be read in two different, yet complementary
ways. It is a fictional place that nevertheless produces echoes of our
actual homes, of our actual ways of life. As its title suggests, the
project tightly interweaves place and memory, in such a way that it
becomes hard to remember which one serves as the premise for the other.
Through the objects and materials it displays, this exhibition awakens
memories that belong to us, but that can also belong to others.

bachelor’s degree in visual and media arts at Université Laval in 2018,
she is now pursuing a master’s degree in visual arts at the same
institution. She has participated in several group exhibitions,
including ExoMars, a satellite exhibition presented as part of the Manif d’art 9. Graham was awarded the 2018 Prix Louis-Garneau. Her first solo exhibition, titled Expo de banlieue, was presented in February 2019 in the exhibition hall of Université Laval’s Pavillon Alphonse-Desjardins.
This exhibition A place/ from memory (Un espace/ de mémoire) was made possible by a project grant from Quebec’s Première Ovationfunding program, to which the artist offers her sincere thanks.

Filmtrack 4 A Sound: Suite Kurelek de Fiala (2010-2020) is
inspired by a pristine, unopened box set of records from the 1980s that
Wright found in 2009. A perfectly preserved artefact of a more
idealistic time, Canadian Anthology (Canadian Broadcasting Corporation
1987) is carefully unboxed, played and recorded a single time, and then
resealed. Within the anthology is George Fiala’s (1922-2017) Kurelek Suite
(1982), an orchestral piece in which each of the five movements is
composed in response to a particular painting by William Kurelek
(1927-1977). Taking Fiala’s homage one step further, Wright makes a
filmic chronicle of the unboxing event, which is then screened as three
contiguous fields on the gallery walls. The result is a visual journey
across vast arctic landscapes of snow and ice – or so it would appear.

Woman is a collection of artworks portraying unknown women from
historical moments. They were photographed and documented, but no one
found it important to share their names. This series uses traditionally
female materials like embroidery and gold leaf to honour their memory.
July 18 to September 29, 2019 Opening: Thursday, July 18, 5:30 to 7:30 pm Artists’ talk: Sunday, September 22, 2 pm Ottawa City Hall, 110 Laurier Avenue West By the bee is an evolving project by collaborating artists
Annette Hegel and Deborah Margo. Bringing together scent, sound, light
and three-dimensional elements, it is a representation of bumble bee
culture. Variations in the size of the sculptures in the installation,
shifts in the volume of sound, emerging scent, changing light
conditions, and the tactile nature of the plant components, make this
work an immersive experience.
