Libby Hague invites us into a world that juxtaposes imagination and playfulness with the harsh realities of our current world. Using the traditional practice of wood-block printing as her starting point, she skillfully incorporates dozens of sculptured figures, found and constructed objects, video, digital animation and puppets, creating an immersive environment that seduces us with movement, colour, and texture. Hague is a masterful storyteller, taking us on a procession-like journey that sparks memories and evokes emotion, allowing us to join her in the creation of a narrative that grounds us in reality, while retaining the dream of a hopeful future.

Tout à la fois is an apt title for an exhibition that inspires us to acknowledge, mourn, question and celebrate this unique moment in our lives and the place we hold in our ever-changing universe.

– Angela Brayham, curator

Fragile and ephemeral, paper provides both the material and a way of working. Her practice focuses on social, ecological, and economic issues by poetically exploring matter. Picard examine the notion of sustainability and the act of leaving a mark. Her works present a material reflection of impermanence, a metaphor for our own existence.
