4th floor - 1011 9th Ave Southeast, Calgary, Alberta T2G 0H7
The world of Calgary-based artists DaveandJenn, Jennifer Saleik and David Foy, merges history with hearsay, mythology with the everyday, and bronze with plastic. The artists will talk about making work in an information age and how their joint practice has evolved over the years from making highly detailed resin paintings to include intricate multi-medium sculptures and now, most recently, installation work.
'Paradise for an in-between time'
29 January — 29 April
In the Project Space
DaveandJenn, also known as David John Foy and Jennifer Saleik, have been working together since 2004. Their varied practice weaves a long view of both human and natural histories together with the more closed off realms of private spectacles and inner landscapes. For Esker’s Project Space, DaveandJenn will install a multi-layered, saturated, and shimmering oasis in the middle of Calgary’s winter, where predators stalk and prey glow in the hot sun.
