Douglas Coupland: Our Modern World

Among the many characteristics of his practice, Coupland is known for his re-contextualization of contemporary cultural trends and how they are articulated by the latest technology. Our Modern World addresses larger societal obsessions by revealing the artist’s personal ones. These examinations are divided into three new bodies of work: Deep Face, Trash Vortex and The Montecristos.

Hydroponic Tower (Side Table) is a NFT (Nutrient Film Technique) system that uses a low draw pump to pull hydroponic solution from a 5 gallon reservoir towards the roots of a plant. The solution becomes oxygenated as it drips onto the roots, coating them with a film that contains all of the plants required nutrients. Because of the closed nature of this system little liquid is evaporated making it one of the most efficient hydroponic systems.

DEEP WOODS: Visual Arts Exhibitions Winter/Spring 2015

Over 30 artists look to the woods to negotiate how the great Canadian landscape continues to inspire art in a contemporary context. From surprising selfies and artistic shenanigans in the Photo Gallery to installations addressing carefully manufactured wilderness in the Architecture Gallery, this series of exhibitions will take you beyond the Group of Seven to explore and redefine how the deep woods might currently inform our national identity.

When compared to other countries in the Western world, migrant detention in Canada is unique. Notoriously, Canada does not follow recognized international human rights norms for migrant detainees; for example, in addition to the three immigration detention centres that exist in the country currently, Canada uses maximum security prisons to hold detainees for ‘administrative’ purposes. There is currently no independent monitoring of conditions inside of detention centres (in which Canada also incarcerates children) or over the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA), Canada’s immigration enforcement body. The work of Tings Chak and Sheena Hoszko responds to this egregious denial of justice and dignity. Their works not only attempt to make visible an often invisible migrant prison population, but also locate and formulate the hidden spaces in which violence is inflicted on the bodies of migrants in Canada.
