Gallery 1C03 is pleased to present Littoral Landscape, a solo exhibition of site-specific mixed-media installations by artist Tracy Peters that investigates ever-shifting shorelines of Lake Winnipeg.
Through an artistic practice that favours multi-sensory experimentation, Peters focuses on time-based exchanges between natural and human occurrences and their effect on the fluctuating environment along the waters’ edge. Littoral Landscape offers an immersive experience with sculptural installations that use photographic processes as their starting point as well as video and sound. Peters created artworks over several months based upon repeated visits to a remote limestone beach north of Hecla/Grindstone Provincial Park as well as to the seasonal pole piers that cottagers and the municipality insert along the shores of Dunnottar. Her poetic works respond to the poignancy of eroding landscapes and urge us to consider our responsibility to protect them.
Gallery hours: weekdays, 12-4 pm & Saturdays, 1-4 pm
