Flags of Unsung Countries opens at Dunlop Art Gallery

Flags of Unsung Countries, which recently opened at Dunlop Art Gallery, embodies the artist’s struggle to belong to both her Nigerian home and her Canadian one. Liz Ikiriko, who is a biracial Nigerian Canadian, uses photography to document her journey to learn more about her Nigerian father. Her struggle is that of many newcomers. How can we belong in Canada and yet hold on to the legacy of a previous home? What makes a home - is it a geography, a building, a memory? Do we choose to belong, or does it choose us?

For Every Sunset We Haven’t Seen Opens at Dunlop Art Gallery

For Every Sunset We Haven’t Seen, a new exhibition opening at Dunlop Art Gallery, creates a space in which to experience emotions as time stops, walls fade away, and the environment stills us for a moment.

The exhibition by Nicole Kelly Westman, a Calgary-based artist of Métis and Icelandic descent, was curated by Jennifer Matotek, Dunlop Art Gallery Director/Curator. It will run from March 9 to April 24, at the Dunlop Art Gallery’s Sherwood Village Branch gallery.

For Every Sunset We Haven’t Seen uses lights, shadows, silks, and colours to transport us away from the frantic pace of modern life. Viewers step into a meditative space that mimics the outside and makes you forget where you are. The artist creates this illusion by hanging silk throughout the room, softening lights, and using a light filter to create shadows that suggest the presence of unseen objects like tree branches.

Viewers are invited to sit on artist-designed furniture and take in Westman’s poetic film about memory and absence, love and loss.

“Through Westman’s beautiful installation, visitors are asked to think about memory, and consider how we might capture memories and moments in different ways without taking photographs,” says Matotek. “It prompts us to think about other ways we might capture and remember moments in time.”

Westman will be available for interviews from March 7 to March 9.
