"Samuel Roy-Bois’ artistic practice involves site specific installations concerned with the conceptual and material definition of space and the ways the built environment contributes to our understanding of the world.
For this new body of work, first exhibited at the Kamloops Art Gallery in 2019, Roy-Bois has created an ensemble of constructed and found objects that consider our contemporary material knowledge.
His architectural structures seem to act as vessels for everyday objects, pointing to ways in which human experience is inextricably linked to manufactured things and spaces, and how the greater meaning of our existence is mediated through things."
Samuel Roy-Bois: Presences is organized and circulated by the Kamloops Art Gallery.
Support for the development and production of new works for the exhibition provided by Esker Foundation.
