Go Wandering with TWU artists
Working in partnership with the Langley Centennial Museum, Trinity Western University’s School of the Arts, Media and Culture (SAMC) presents the 2013 graduating students’ art show, In Wandering.
The exhibit traces the artists’ journeys as they question meaning, inter-subjectivity, identity, depression, the Second Self (the digital social and psychological identity), and impact on the environment.
An art and design and psychology major, Dan Hurst uses a non-traditional medium, human hair, to explore two systems of knowing — mythic and scientific. By juxtaposing these two systems in his work, he explores the odd concurrence of making meaning from remnants.
“Knowledge is connecting the dots,” said Hurst. He hopes that his work will “cultivate dialogue by revealing connections that may have been previously unexplored.”
For the students, In Wandering is the pinnacle of four-years of hard work, investigation, and academic study. It is a showcase of their breadth of work and growth as artists.
“I am seeking to navigate the tragic and ironic relationship between the beauty of the sky and human interference”, said art and design major Su Jung Park. She uses pastel and graphite to explore the chemical consequences revealed in the sky.
“We live in a developed country, yet even now, we still destroy the nature given to us,” said Park.
In Wandering runs March 26 to April 27 at Langley Centennial Museum, 9135 King St. Fort Langley.
Opening reception is March 26 from 6:30 p.m. to 9 p.m. Presented as part of TWU’s Festival of the Arts, Media and Culture.
