Colleen Collins
January 20, 2019 - February 23, 2019

I am a Nova Scotia-based interdisciplinary artist. My work centers on temporality, presumptions of sentience, subversion, rhythm, geographies, architectures, the ouroboric and the polyglottic. I’ve studied fine and conceptual art at the Burren College of Art in Ireland, the Nova Scotia College of Art & Design, and Whitecliffe College of Arts and Design in New Zealand; I’ve studied English at the University of New Brunswick. I’ve studied music through the Royal Conservatory, and in dark bars across lands for years as half of my band Construction & Destruction. I live with animals, regret, appetite, gratitude, and my partner Dave.

Jon Sasaki
September 22, 2019 - October 26, 2019

Jon Sasaki is a Toronto-based multidisciplinary artist whose practice brings performance, video, object and installation into a framework where expectation and outcome never align, generating a simultaneous sense of pathos and levity. His work employs reason-based approaches reminiscent of conceptual art while investigating romantic subjects; in this juxtaposition, Sasaki creates humorous, self-exhaustive systems caught in cycles of trial and error.
