A new exhibition featuring the work of one Canada’s most innovative conceptual artists.
Since her first exhibition at Ottawa’s SAW Gallery in 1984, Moyra Davey has continued to push the boundaries between photography, film, text and the human experience.
This new exhibition features 54 photographs and 6 films by Davey, along with more than a dozen works from the Gallery collection. Developed by the artist and curator Andrea Kunard, the exhibition explores the artist’s trajectory from early images of family and friends, through portraits of the detritus of everyday life, her mailed photographs, and films examining the work of authors, philosophers and artists.
One of the exhibition’s highlights is Davey’s new film, i confess, and related photographs reflecting upon her memories of life in Quebec during the seventies and eighties.
