Chris Hanson and Hendrika Sonnenberg have been collaborating for more than 25 years. Their collaborations span a variety of mediums, but is fundamentally a practice based in sculpture. Their work often use everyday objects that are frequently remade in materials that defy the objects’ original function or skew the relationship they have with their meaning. The artists often look to infuse a sense of fragility, humor, curiosity, and fallibility into the objects they make.

Chris and Hendrika’s exhibition at the Agnes Jamieson Gallery presents work that drifts through small observations at the peripheries of the everyday of their hometown, Minden Ontario.
