Zachari Logan at Nuit Blanche Saskatoon
September 27, 2014, 8 – 12pm
AKA is proud to partner with Nuit Blanche Saskatoon to present a project by Saskatoon-based artist Zachari Logan. The inaugural event takes place in the Riversdale neighbourhood of Saskatoon, with a variety of projects located inside local storefronts and on the street itself. Logan’s organic floral wall hanging (previously installed at Angus-Hughes Gallery, London, UK and Schleifmühlgasse 12-14, Vienna, Austria) will be installed inside local thrift shop The Village Green alongside a selection of his ceramic works.
Zachari Logan is a Saskatoon-based artist working mainly in large-scale drawing, ceramics and installation practices. In his current work Logan employs a strategy of visual quotation, mined from place and experience, re-wilding his body as a queer embodiment of nature. This narrative shift engages both empirical explorations of landscape and overlapping art-historic motifs. Logan’s work has been exhibited widely, in group and solo exhibitions throughout North America and Europe, including: Athens, Amsterdam, Barcelona, Berlin, Cincinnati, Calgary, London, Los Angeles, Miami, Montreal, New York, Ottawa, Paris, Toronto and Vienna and can be found in public and private collections worldwide. http://www.zachariloganart.com
