Touching Sound

Dawn Matheson and Olivia Brouwer

Partnering with the Canadian National Instate for the Blind and supported by the Ontario Arts Council, Touching Sound is a sensory-led nature walk and workshop that was available for individuals with sight loss. Social practice and sound artist, Dawn Matheson, along with Olivia Brouwer, a partially-blind artist, led the work. The workshop involved the creation of sound-activated mixed media sculptures based on recordings and sensory activities while walking in nature at the Guelph Arboretum. Mobiles created from the workshop were also temporarily exhibited at the Guelph Civic Museum from July-August 2023. A second workshop will be held in Waterloo, Ontario on Saturday, May 25th, 2024 from 1-3pm at the Walter Bean Grand River Trail and Waterloo Public Library Eastside Branch. The exhibition will be held at The Button Factory from June to July 2024.

Memory corrosion

The first canvas captures the initial stages of memory corrosion, where fragmented recollections intertwine with the act of walking. Here, blurred images and disjointed pathways symbolize the fleeting nature of memory as one navigates through the labyrinth of the mind. In the second canvas, wandering takes center stage as memories meander through subconscious landscapes. Tangled brushstrokes and obscured landmarks evoke the sensation of drifting aimlessly, mirroring the unpredictable nature of memory recall. The final canvas embodies letting go as memories dissolve into ethereal landscapes of abstraction. Fading colors and fading contours signify the gradual release of attachment to the past, allowing space for new experiences and narratives to emerge.

Ascending into Trenches

Yannis Ziogas I wander in places visible and invisible. I find objects, I trace experiences, I foresee conditions of creativity. Where do I locate myself? I have been in places […]I have wondered in conditions and situations[…] And now I am here. Where is that here? Who do I find in this here?
