      Pedro Reyes discusses his "Sanatorium" project - initiated in 2011 and on display at The Power Plant during Summer 2014 - within the larger context of his practice. Reyes's work expands upon the notions of sculpture and are informed by a wide array of references resulting in a variety of form. Less interested in critiquing institutions and more in reimagining them, Reyes uses art as a way to encourage collective and individual agency. Video produced by John Verhaeven.

      • Elspeth Pratt - Visual Art Forums


        from Emily Carr University / Added

        February 2, 2015. Elspeth Pratt’s sculptures demonstrate her interest in architecture and social spaces. She uses a variety of prosaic materials, from plywood to beverage containers, to comment on how architecture structures our lives. Throughout her career, she has shown an interest in public spaces such as shopping malls, gardens and train stations, as well as “pseudo-escapist” spaces such as spas, casinos and resorts. She has also explored airports and is interested in how they control our actions as we navigate them. Her most recent sculptures, made of common building and impoverished materials, are precariously perched, sometimes leaning on a wall for support. These collage-like constructions include the space that surrounds them. Through a physical and involved working process, Pratt balances materials, ideas and space to formulate her work through a constant flow and accumulation of ideas. In addition, her use of common and readily available materials is contrasted with the permanence that is traditionally associated with sculpture. In this way, Pratt challenges assumptions about the inherent nature of her medium. Pratt has shown nationally and internationally for three decades and her works are part of collections all over Canada. Recent exhibitions include Nonetheless at the Cooley Art Gallery in Portland, OR (2011) and Second Date, a large-scale public art project at the Vancouver Art Gallery’s Offsite (2011). This talk is part of the Visual Art Forums, presented by the Faculty of Visual Art + Material Practice and the Faculty of Graduate Studies at Emily Carr University of Art + Design.

This lecture presentation formed part of a research residency supported by the Warhol Foundation, and was hosted by the STUDIO on 27 January 2015, in collaboration with the CMU School of Art, the CMU CyLab Usable Privacy and Security (CUPS) Laboratory and the CMU Carnegie Institute of Technology (CIT). Julian Oliver is a critical engineer and artist based in Berlin. Active internationally since 1996, his work spans network art, software art, game design, activism, creative hacking, data forensics, computer networking, information visualization and open source development practices. He is a long-time advocate of the use of free software in education and artistic production and supports projects and initiatives that assert civil rights in networked domains. Danja Vasiliev, born in Saint Petersburg, is a Berlin-based artist and critical engineer. Vasiliev studies systems and networks through anti-disciplinary experimentation with hardware, firmware and software. Using computational platforms he engages in examination and exploitation of system and network paradigms in both the physical and digital realms. Oliver and Vasiliev are co-authors (with Gordan Savičić) of the influential Critical Engineeering Manifesto, and (for their Newstweek project) recipients of the 2011 Prix Ars Electronica Golden Nica.
