Christine Dewancker

April 6, 2022 – April 30, 2022

The Red Head Gallery is pleased to present Material Flow an exhibition of new work by artist Christine Dewancker.

Material Flow, is inspired by the life cycle of materials and how these materials are encountered in our everyday environments, Material Flow incorporates industrial building practices to create works which foreground the body and organic forms. Each piece brings forth a sensual quality of the material, positioning it in direct contrast with its utilitarian origin. From the conception of spatial design to the use (and misuse) of the materials employed through the construction process, Material Flow asks viewers to consider, β€œWhat are the latent philosophies imbued in the materials (and waste) we produce?” and, β€œWhat is the reciprocal relationship between us and the spaces we occupy?”

Biography

Christine is an artist currently living in Toronto, Canada. Through her work she explores the physical and psychological effects of the spaces we occupy and how the built environment informs our experiences and relationships with each other. She is interested in systems of production and circulation and how these conditions influence our relationship to materials and place. Much of her work is site specific, responding to the environment in which it is situated and is informed by the historical, socio-economic and ecological conditions that produce the places we inhabit.
