analemma
Marisa Gallemit (visual artist) & Martin Charbonneau (lighting designer)

March 21, 2018 – June 21, 2018

Not every day is exactly 24 hours long.

Our planet sits on an axis 23.5° in relation to the plane of its orbit around the sun, and orbits around the glowing star in an elliptical shape. These two particularities contribute to solar analemma, a phenomenon that causes slight fluctuations in the length of our solar day by almost a minute over the course of a year.

With the subtle imperfections of the Earth’s path in mind, analemma depicts the ongoing incremental changes to our relationship with the cosmos: the seasonal shift from darkness to light and back again, the passage of time and how we perceive it, the inappreciable changes of course that occur in our day-to-day lives.

Using suspended elements constructed with discarded 16mm film, old bicycle tubes and paper (embodying both illumination and shadow), Gallemit + Charbonneau suggest winged, celestial forms which are activated by lighting designed to evoke the slight deviations in the sun’s glow over the course of the year.

Marisa Gallemit is an Ottawa-based visual artist whose practice spans sculpture, assemblage and site-specific installation. After studying film at Carleton University (Ottawa) and the New York Film Academy (NYC), her focus shifted to more three-dimensional works, concentrating on organic forms and textures contrasted with re-purposed materials, aspiring to make monuments to our collective and subtle human experiences.

The Stantec Window Gallery is located on the southwest corner of Spadina Ave. and Wellington St. W, facing Spadina.
