The Garden Of Earthly Delights

Juan Ortiz-Apuy

Exhibition Dates

Aug 25, 2016 – Oct 8, 2016
Opening Reception: Friday, Aug 26th
7–9pm
Artist Talk Friday, Aug 26th, 6pm

SNAP invites members and guests to The Garden Of Earthly Delights by Juan Ortiz-apuy. The Garden of Earthly Delights is a sculptural installation exploring advertising and commodity fetishism, specifically how ideas of animism are encoded in the way that objects are designed, imaged and displayed.

Included in the exhibition are a series of large scale, hand-cut collages made with hundreds of clippings from magazines and sales catalogues. In these works, these ideas are further developed and explored against the backdrop of a fictional clash between the turn of the 20th Century modernist architect, Adolf Loos, and his greatest nemesis, Art Nouveau.

Juan Ortiz-apuy completed his Master of Fine Arts at the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design and his Bachelor of Fine Arts from the University of Concordia. He has also had multiple teaching appointments at both institutions and the University of Manitoba.

Juan Ortiz-apuy wishes to thank the Conseil des arts et des lettres du Québec and the Canada Council for the Arts for their financial support

Retrograde

Jill Ho-You

Exhibition Dates

Aug 25, 2016 – Oct 8, 2016
Opening Reception: Friday, Aug 26th
7–9pm

SNAP invites members and guests to experience Retrograde by Edmonton based artist Jill Ho-you.

Through hybrid printmaking and bioart, Retrograde explores the aftermath of the Anthropocene if changes in climate, biodiversity, and sustainability reach their predicted negative climax. Exploring what remains after the projected extinction of humanity, the work explores the idea of systemic failure while drawing parallels between the biologic, environmental, and man-made. Jill Ho-You is a sessional instructor at the Alberta College of Art + Design and at the University of Alberta. Her prints and drawings have been exhibited nationally and internationally, including solo exhibitions at Harcourt House in Edmonton, AB (2013) and the University of the Arts in Philadelphia (2011.)
