CARFAC SASK's 2019 Visiting Mentor, Sarah Ciurysek, will present a public artist talk in Regina. The talk is free and everyone is welcome! Light refreshments will be served.
Sarah Ciurysek is a visual artist exploring the relationships we have with the ground. Soil figures prominently in works that reference graves, voids, and death, as well as the life-giving components of the earth. The heart of Sarah’s practice is photographic, which she combines with installation, video, and audio, and most recently, textiles. Sarah was raised on a farm in northern Alberta and she continues to work with the land there, while studying relationships to place during residencies and exhibitions (most recently at Textilsetur, Iceland and Schleifmühlgasse 12-14, Vienna). Sarah lives in Winnipeg, where she is an Assistant Professor at the School of Art.
Artists working in Saskatchewan are encouraged to apply for a studio visit with Sarah. The program is free to CARFAC members and $45 for non-members. Visits will be conducted in Regina from June 27-30 and spots are limited. Apply by May 31st.
With thanks to our program funder, Sask Culture through the Sask Lotteries Trust Fund and our presentation partner, the Art Gallery of Regina.
