Join us Friday September 13th at 4:00 PM for our monthly Meet & Greet event with visiting artists Mitch Mitchell (Quebec) and Pepa Chan (NL). This event is generously sponsored by Quidi Vidi Brewery.
ARTIST BIO: Pepa Chan
Pepa Chan is an interdisciplinary artist, art educator, and musician originally from Buenos Aires, Argentina, now living in St. John’s. During her residency, she will be creating “Garden of Unease,” a hand-printed journal that reflects on the profound complexities of domestic relationships and intimacy. The work will include superimposed monotypes and silkscreens creating a symbolic visual narrative. Pepa’s art practice includes and often combines site-specific installation, sculpture, printmaking, performance, and video to generate difficult questions about society, gender and violence. She has independently curated and exhibited work at unconventional sites and public spaces, and has a special interest in collaborative practices and socially engaged work.
ARTIST BIO: Mitch Mitchell
Mitch Mitchell is a project-based artist exploring psychologies of labour and familial histories through the production of print-based practices. Through alteration of the mundane surface his sculptural and performance based works suggest notions of trauma and the frailty of the human psyche through the physical mass production of the multiple and/or transformation of historic objects. The constructions of his multiple bodies of works adopt materials of a democratic nature, rust, flour, water, newsprint and labour embedding the sculptural surfaces with notions of industry, time, alchemy and the impact of physical performance on the psyche.
