NOV. 6 - DEC 18, 2020
Artist Talk: Dec 3
SPAO is proud to present Rem/a/inder, an exhibition featuring the photo-based work of Jennifer Stewart and Hannah Evans. The exhibition explores the ephemera of lost relationships, the tactile reminders that bind us to emotions, and the remainders of memory. If leaving a relationship is akin to bleeding out or shedding a skin, Rem/a/inder will exhibit that blood and skin through photographs, objects, and sound.
Exploring themes dealing with both loss and recovery, the works on display engage with concepts including gender, sexuality, and mental health. Objects remind us of another time, and photographs remain in the absence of human contact. Meanwhile the COVID-19 pandemic has catalysed numerous relationships, and it is more important now, than ever before, to check in with our mental health and reassess our relationships. What binds you to what you have lost? How can you move forward?
