No Ceiling: It's About Time | Artist Talk | Sarindar Dhaliwal

Thursday, October 26, 7pm

Royal Canadian Legion – 15 Lorne St.


This address is part of No Ceiling: It's About Time

Sarindar Dhaliwal’s practice, multidisciplinary but thematically cohesive meditations on childhood memories and the experience of migration, focuses on not only how this affects the way we remember our formative years, but also how we recreate the past using personal and autobiographical narratives. The talk will introduce bodies of work that encompass the parameters of No Ceiling: time, seasons, and historical moments. For example, works from the cartographer's mistake series range in time. the cartographer's mistake pieces are set in various eras and geographies: 1852 (London) 1910 and 1948 (Medicine Hat), 1963 (England) and other places: Sydney (2012), Venice, Paris, Toronto and Devon.
