Until Now

In Until Now, Rachel Burns questions her history, her family’s history, and the concept of time itself. Through this exhibition, she reduces a short fragment of the universe to constituent parts. Burns explores the pain of impermanence with the understanding that change creates the opportunity to accept the past, and to see the overwhelming beauty in the things that do not last.

Her contemplative process involves selecting family photographs and videos as source material. Through digitally documenting and then reconstructing her archived history, the original experience is rediscovered in a new reality. In Burns’ video work, she layers images so that they appear as softly abstract compositions, initially revealing and illuminating until accumulation renders all invisible. In some works, the process of re-documenting photographs informs graphite drawings that Burns erases once complete. She preserves the eraser rubbings as objects that commemorate their own loss, often photographing them or presenting them as fragments in jars.

Burns’ multimedia work is often informed by her photographic images, and extends to painting, sculpture, drawing, and video art. She has recently received recognition from Saatchi Gallery in the UK and Flash Forward Incubator in Toronto.

Spaces In Between

Spaces In Between is a multi-media exhibition that showcases the artwork of 14 emerging artists in the Greater Toronto Area. The exhibiting artwork creates alternative spaces and/or explores the passage of time through traditional and new media methods. Artists create visualizations of another world through depiction or installation. These spaces exist in their memory, the present, the future or their imagination.

This exhibition is curated by Jenny Chen. Join us for a reception on April 22, 2018 from 3-5pm.
