CARFAC SASK's 2019 Visiting Mentor, Sarah Ciurysek, will present a public artist talk in Saskatoon. 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 Saskatoon from July 3-7 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, AKA Artist Run.
