Diana Thorneycroft: Black Forest (dark waters)

September 22, 2018 to November 18, 2018

Location: Lee-Chin Family Gallery
Public reception: Friday September 21, 6pm-9pm
Artist & Curator Talk: Saturday September 22, 2pm
Guest Curator: Denis Longchamps

Winnipeg artist Diana Thorneycroft presents three of her recent works Herd, The Village and Black Forest (dark waters) in this stunning installation. Over a hundred and fifty toy horses stampede throughout the gallery in Herd, some with morphed appearances. The altered physical representation of the horses highlight a juxtaposition of the animals as vulnerable yet powerful, tamed but wild. The Village depicts the keepers of the herd. The photographic imagery of Black Forest (dark waters) surrounds Herd and The Village, exploring the relationship of the horses with herdsmen. The exhibition challenges our perception of differences and our relationship with others.
