Reception March 4th 2015, 7-9 pm
In her latest exhibition Montreal artist Natalie Draz investigates potential parallels between drawing, body and buildings. Playing with the differences between these discrete forms, tensions become evident visually and materially, as notions of space, experiential memory and identity are questioned.
"Can a building stand in for a memory? Can a body contain a world? Is a place also a text block? For me, a drawing can be an embodiment of my interior world...Grounded in the reality of my recognizable surroundings, the places I inhabit become compilations of myth, truth and reality." Draz's work leads us to question the nature of our urban reality. Her drawings dissolve and grow through and into installation, an environment, and a free-standing fragmentary visual text, offering a variety of narratives dependent on the viewer.
