Southern Alberta Art Gallery: ALMOST ACTUAL | CATHERINE BURGESS
July 3, to Sept 12, 2021
aLmost actuaL, a heuristic approach to art practice, unveils the precision of thought and creative process as experience. The naming of the sculptures becomes an active part of completing the creation of the sculpture. Name is not separated from the work — it is a part of it and becomes its completion in the very act of naming. These new works describe the fundamental states of being, wherein that which is difficult to define will come to the viewer with a clarity of form, and meaning.
Curated by Ania Sleczkowska
Catherine Burgess has practiced as a sculptor for more than forty years. A Fine Arts graduate of the University of Alberta, she maintains a sculpture studio in Edmonton and has mounted over twenty-five solo exhibitions, and shown in over sixty group exhibitions in Canada, the US and England. She has completed four large-scale public sculpture commissions, two of which are located in downtown Edmonton: The Big Rock, a collaboration with Sandra Bromley, 1995 and Return, 2001. She has also collaborated with the artist group Tricycle on several large-scale public sculpture installations. Her work is represented in over twenty-five public collections across Canada.
This exhibition was made possible with funding assistance from the Canada Council for the Arts, Alberta Foundation for the Arts, and the City of Lethbridge.
