THE YOLK OF MENIAL LIGHT Andrea Roberts

23 October – 1 December 2015

Launch – 7pm, Friday 23 October   |   Artist talk – 7pm, Friday 6 November

Talking cures and speaking truths. Apologies. Oaths. The magic of words. The weight of light. 

THE YOLK OF MENIAL LIGHT is a large scale intermedia installation that pulls from the disparate worlds of self-help, capitalist tech-utopianism, street level advertising and the everyday emotional experiences of labor.

 

Andrea Roberts is Canadian intermedia artist whose work merges sound, performance, video and installation. A recent recipient of San Francisco’s Murphy & Cadogan Contemporary Art Award, Roberts has shown and performed at galleries and festivals internationally; from San Francisco’s 1038 and SomArts to Havana’s CT International Print Biennial and Montreal’s Film Pop. Roberts received their BFA Hons in Sculpture from the University of Manitoba in 2011 and a MFA in Sculpture from California College of the Arts in 2014.

THE YOLK OF MENIAL LIGHT   |   Andrea Roberts

Du 23 octobre au 1 décembre 2015   |   Causerie d’artiste – le vendredi 6 novembre

Des cures de parole et des vérités révélées. Des excuses. Des serments. La magie des mots. La pesanteur de la lumière.

THE YOLK OF MENIAL LIGHT est une installation inter-média à grande échelle qui s’inspire des mondes disparates du développement personnel, de l’utopisme capitaliste technologique, des panneaux publicitaires au niveau de la rue et des émotions ressenties lors du travail de tous les jours.
