Sarah Ciurysek Artist Talk
June 4, 2019 at 7pm
Join us on July 4, 7pm at AKA for and artist talk by Sarah Ciurysek, CARFAC Sask’s 2019 visiting mentor. 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.
