Abstract (English)

"Conceived of as an ephemeral third exhibition space for Dunlop Art Gallery, Snow Gallery will be constructed by artists Lucien Durey and Katie Kozak, alongside a team of volunteers, and will remain as long as winter.

Four packed snow walls form an impermanent structure that functions simultaneously as a gallery and public artwork. Inside the gallery walls are found objects encased in carefully-constructed ice vitrines, set atop snow plinths. These objects, sourced from local thrift shops and antique stores, carry with them unknown personal significance and histories. Together, they form a loose portrait of the city, while reflecting the artists' curatorial interests. As the exhibition melts, or is deconstructed by passersby, the objects have the potential to be claimed or to disappear, landing in unforeseeable places: thrift stores, houses, or garbage bins. The gallery too will melt, and will become part of the water system from which it was created, drawing parallels between the cycle of consumer goods and the cycles of nature." -- Publisher's website.
