December 11, 2010 – January 29, 2011
Birch Libralato proudly presents Kelly Richardson’s third solo exhibition at the gallery featuring her latest work, The Erudition. Facilitated in part by the Southern Alberta Art Gallery, Richardson has manufactured a stunning interpretation of a Canadian landscape with her unique blend of the real and the imagined. Please join us for the opening, December 11 from 2-5pm.
Kelly Richardson’s major new video installation The Erudition will premiere this December/January in three Canadian provinces simultaneously. Mining the aesthetics of cinema and science fiction, The Erudition presents a lunar-esque looking landscape with what appears to be an unlikely monument or proposal, consisting of holographic trees blowing in fictional wind. Is this slightly malfunctioning display a forgotten site for proposed colonization? Better yet, is this some kind of alien artwork?
The Erudition (single channel) will begin its Canada-wide premiere at the Art Gallery of Nova Scotia (Halifax, Nova Scotia), followed by Birch Libralato (Toronto, Ontario) and finally, the full triple-channel version will make its debut at the Southern Alberta Art Gallery (Lethbridge, Alberta).
