Tarryn Teresa Gallery is pleased to present Palimpsests, an exhibit from guest curator Elizabeth Williams featuring work by Cara Barer, Annie Vought and Christine Wong Yap. Whether done playfully or poignantly, the artists in Palimpsests pay tribute to the associations and meanings we bring to the written word. Collections of words can differ extraordinarily, as can the reader’s response to them. Letters, books, newspapers, magazines or small one-page notes all offer the ability to inspire feelings of attachment or even aversion. An audience’s perception is mainly influenced by the meaning of the words themselves, but the manner of delivery can create an air of legitimacy, sentimentality or stronger emotions. With these visual works, the artists address the continuum of the written word.

For Cara Barer, old volumes of books serve as inspiration. Wetting them and twisting and turning them into odd shapes, the volumes take on a new life. Sometimes made to resemble living beings and sometimes allowed to remain as abstract geometric shapes, these old volumes impress the viewer anew with their tangibility and physical presence. By retracing and cutting out the letters in private correspondence, Annie Vought interpolates herself into the original document with amusing and poignant results. Installation artist Christine Wong Yap creates text installations which address language’s inability to convey fully our meanings. In this exhibit, her installations and wall pieces feature text construed or arranged so as to be indecipherable.

In Palimpsests, the artists address the concept of re-purposement of words for artistic ends. Like the original meaning of a palimpsest, these words used in these pieces are encapsulated in their medium and transformed by it.

Some Room
Alexandre David
September 10 – October 10, 2009
Opening Thursday September 10 @ 8pm

Some Room, by Alexandre David is an exhibition consisting of an architectural space split in two. It is based on a simple differentiation between a space one can only look at and a space one can move around in. In a way, this is similar to what we experience every time we walk on the street and look through a window, or walk into a building and look at the ceiling. Our everyday architectural sensations are a necessary background for his work in sculpture. David does not reference architecture as a subject but makes work that relies on the way we walk through doorways with ease, walk alongside walls, turn corners and sit on benches for example. He works with standard heights of ceilings, tables, benches and steps. For this project, the grunt gallery space will be reorganized for the duration of the exhibition in a way that combines a very clear architectural experience with the sensibility that this is just one possible architectural intervention, or thought, among many.

Alexandre David lives and works in Montreal. He mainly works in the field of sculpture, and his projects often relate to architecture. His work has been shown in various museums and galleries in Canada, the United Kingdom, the Netherlands and France. In 2006 he was awarded the Louis-Comtois Prize, given to a mid-career artist by the city of Montreal. He has recently exhibited his work in solo exhibitions at Optica and Dare-Dare in Montreal and La Chambre Blanche in Quebec City. In 2009 he exhibited his work at Aceartinc in Winnipeg and took part in the show Base Camp at Truck in Calgary. He will also be taking part in the upcoming show Off the Wall at Concordia University’s Leonard & Bina Ellen Art Gallery in Montreal.
