living things


A new sense of care is given to the physical as Living Things reconsiders the relationship between the artist and their chosen materials. Living Things is the culmination of a three month long artist residency created in collaboration between the VAV Gallery and Concordia's Center for Creative Reuse (CUCCR). Eight undergraduate Fine Arts students were selected to create works that consider life-after-art, giving old materials a new raison d’être, with objects primarily sourced from Concordia University's waste-stream.
