The Middle Place, an exhibition by old Such and Such'er David Lemm, with previous exhibitors Al White and Jamie Johnson
“THE MIDDLE PLACE”
An exhibition of new work by
The Old Ambulance Depot
77 Brunswick Street,
Preview Friday 4th May 7-9pm
To coincide with the opening of The Onaway Trust Library, artists David Lemm, Jamie Johnson and Al White invite you to an exhibition of new works concerned with the study and re-imagining of themes found within the histories and cultures of indigenous peoples.
Rather than didactic illustrations, the outcomes are informed interpretations where new narratives are implied and the viewer invited to explore an archive of enigmatic yet engaging artifacts that reference archaic ritual, arcane practice and point to lost knowledge that is at the limits of reality as we understand it.
It is the sense of an original context and source of implied importance being lost that we wish to translate and articulate through printmaking, painting, drawing and sculpture.
