In Between

APRIL 25-MAY 19, 2012

OPENING RECEPTION: Saturday, April 28, 2-5pm

 To be a body, is to be tied to a certain world.

Maurice Merleau-Ponty


In Between is a photography and video-based reflection on human and ecological  movement  and motion.  By capturing and deconstructing aspects of  movement, new  physical and psychological exigencies come into play.   From still and  contemplative to dynamic and electrifying, the works  metaphorically  probe control, desire, freedom and the moments that  happen in between.

Joan  Kaufman  is a Canadian multi-disciplinary artist whose practice is based  in  photography, sculpture, video and sound composition.  She produces  photographic, filmic, and video constructs that probe the human  condition and natural order by examining provocative coping strategies  for uncertainty, complexity and change inherent to contemporary life.

Kaufman  has exhibited nationally and internationally; is the  recipient of Canada  Council, Ontario Arts Council and Manitoba Arts  Council grants; and has  works in both public and private collections.
