David Altmejd: The Vessel
January 19, 2018 to April 29, 2018
The Vessel (2011) features plaster casts of the artist’s hands which serve as heads of graceful swans in flight. By combining human features associated with the senses and a bird of symbolic stature in poetry and myth, Altmejd conjures movement and metamorphosis. The Vessel also references another kind of transformation, relating to the act of artistic creation itself. Altmejd represented Canada at the Venice Biennale of Visual Art in 2007 and was the winner of the Sobey Art Award in 2009.
Venue: Winnipeg Art Gallery
