Referencing The Digital
August 22 - October 5
Archive Contemporary presents an artist in residence program, Referencing the Digital, featuring Sarah Hodgson and Atticus Gordon.
For the course of six weeks, Ottawan artists Sarah and Atticus will occupy the gallery space, preparing a new body of work which will culminate in a pop-up exhibition during the first week of October.
Sarah’s work explores the digital age and its influence on the human memory, while exploring the interplay between the past and the present to imagine future potentialities.Her upcoming project will focus on new strategies for incorporating digital imagery into traditional sculpture, by way of traditional and new media (3D imaging, manipulating acrylic plastics and laser cutting).
Atticus Gordon will be creating a site specific installation made out of found objects: paper, wood, and miniature modeling materials. Atticus’ installation work explores notions of space, perception, and how digital culture influences notions of Utopia in the physical environments we inhabit.
Atticus will be simultaneously creating a body of paintings based on his own digital photography. These collaged paintings bridge the digital realm and classical painting.
The gallery space will be open to visitors. Sarah and Atticus look forward to meeting you, discussing their creative process, and demonstrating some of the techniques they employ in their artistry.
