Nika Feldman | Spirits in the Material World
January 25, 2019 - March 23, 2019

Nika Feldman unveils a series of seven garment-like works along with accompanying objects of adornment, made from recycled t-shirt parts and salvaged aluminum can pull-tabs. Representing over 2,000 hours of handwork by the Nova Scotia artist, the intricate pieces are inspired by the coded language of clothing. "It's an attempt to create a new dialect," Feldman says. "In today's world what does contemporary clothing say about North American culture?" The artist's ubiquitous materials communicate concepts of status, currency, convenience, and disposability. By presenting quotidian materials in a dazzling new context and giving them a human shape on the wall, Feldman brings viewers face-to-face with the cultural value systems that they embody. Opening Reception: Friday, January 25, 5-7 pm | RSVP on FacebookArtist Talk: Saturday, January 26, 2-3 pm | RSVP on Facebook Tees & Tabs Workshop: Saturday, March 16, 1-5 pm | Register
