Rita McKeough: feel through the deepness to see

April 27 – June 18, 2024
Dunlop Art Gallery (Central Library)
More Information

Curated by Tomas Jonsson

In feel through the deepness to see, a new immersive exhibition by celebrated media and performance artist Rita McKeough, we journey below ground, where plants and animals gather and try to make sense of the activities of machines that labour above. Together, we are invited to imagine interspecies relationships beyond the destructive exploitation of extractive industrialism.

The exhibition is the third iteration of a series, including darkness is as deep as the darkness is, curated by Jacqueline Bell at the Walter Philips Gallery, and dig as deep as the darkness, curated by Dylan McHugh for the Richmond Art Gallery.

The exhibition is supported by the Canada Council for the Arts, the Alberta Foundation for the Arts, and the Gail and Stephen A. Jarislowsky Outstanding Artist Program. The artist would also like to thank the Canada Council for the Arts, the Alberta Foundation of the Arts and Alberta University of the Arts, Bemis Centre for Contemporary Art for their generous support and everyone who contributed to the production of this work.

Larissa Tiggelers’ artistic practice explores articulations of care through mindful colour selections, dynamic yet composed forms, and surfaces of softly cumulative gestures. These qualities point to her interest in the unknowability of colour, the limitations of authorship, and quiet expressions of care. This exhibition is composed of near-diptych paintings that play with visual phenomena of mirroring and slippery symmetries. Many of the paintings are on a single surface, creating pairings that speak to one another through a shared language while pursing distinct identities. This creates a discrete viewing experience that relies on slow contemplation, keen visual examination, and deep curiosity in order to explore the many puzzles that lie within each work.

Larissa Tiggelers holds an MFA from the University of Guelph and BFA from the Alberta College of Art and Design. Her works are in several public and private collections, and have been exhibited at Norberg Hall (Calgary), Christie Contemporary (Toronto), The Bakery (Vancouver), Art Gallery of Alberta (Edmonton), and Paniki Gallery (Batan, Philippines). Tiggelers is an Assistant Professor in Painting and Drawing in the Department of Visual Arts at the University of Regina, on Treaty 4 lands.
