• Rajni Perera – (m)Otherworld Creates and Destroys Itself
    Opening Reception: Thursday Oct 4th, 6-9pm
    Exhibition Dates: October 4-27th
    Location: Project Gallery, 1210 Dundas Street East
    Project Gallery is pleased to present a solo exhibition of Rajni Perera’s new work at our Dundas location.For this solo show Rajni Perera expands on the hyperdimensional and begins to make a foray into monsters and monsterity which act as a catalyst for mythmaking. As immigrants and the marginalized move into and take up space on oppressors/settlers lands one of the cultural enforcements that are taken away are the myths. Myths and mythology, and the characters that operate within them, make dreams robust and goals achievable. By focusing on monsters, dreamworlds, mythmaking and the ultimate othering that follows beings who exist between several worlds or dimensions, the effort to bring strength to the undervalued, displaced and persecuted is made by way of subverting a notion that any person or thing is singular or exists in any one place. That is, negating the concept of singular existence brings to ones attention a complete wholeness.Rajni Perera (b.1985) graduated from OCADU in 2011 with the medal in Drawing and Painting. She explores issues of hybridity, sacrilege, irreverence, the indexical sciences, ethnography, gender, sexuality, popular culture, deities, monsters and dream worlds. All of these themes marry in a newly objectified realm of mythical symbioses. They are flattened on the medium and made to act as her personal record of impossible discoveries.
    Project Gallery is located at 1210 Dundas Street E (at the intersection of Dundas and Carlaw) and exhibits a critical selection of artists whose work reflects new and innovative developments in contemporary art. Project is focused on establishing the careers of local emerging and mid-career contemporary artists through distinct exhibitions and projects.Operating hours are, Tuesday-Saturday, 11:00am-6:00pm.

    Exhibition Dates: Oct 12-Nov 18
    Location: Project Studios 184 Munro Street (rear)

    Project Studios is pleased to host a unique exhibition curated by Tessar Lo featuring works by artists in media that is atypical to their practice.

    have you ever gone about your routine (maybe routine of non-routine) and thought,
    “am i me?”
    have you ever done or tried something you’ve never done before and thought,
    “ah! so this is me, (?)”
    side piece, is a group show that asks artists to present a work that may aesthetically or thematically fall outside their more focused, noted methods of working- side piece, is a small, humorous gathering of diverse curiosity that may have inspired, are a remnant of or were made directly opposed to larger creative motives-
    this gathering is meant to ask why things exist, why these notions were necessary (if at all?), how they manifest, and how they contribute to thinking and feeling moving forward.
