Due to unforeseen circumstances the exhibition ‘Pairings’ starts on Thursday, January 19. Please also note the updated weekend hours.
‘Pairings’ creates a visual menu of contemporary Canadian design, and explores the relationships between objects, art, and space. The show strategically combines pieces from four of SOUVENIR’s current contributors – Xenia Taler, Akai Ceramic Studio, Coolican & Company, and Oscar Kwong – through the use colour, shape, and design motifs.
Like a good meal, the pairings will consider and play with ideas of contrast, proportion, and balance, working to highlight or diminish elements and details where desired. Juxtapositions and combinations will be used as a vehicle for conversation. Alongside the grouped displays, each designer will be individually highlighted throughout the space.
With the concept of collaboration as a sub-theme, ceramicists Xenia Taler and Akai Ceramic Studio will debut their ongoing collaborative project, mounting their entire collection of one-of-a-kind art objects and vessels. With collaborative projects becoming commonplace in the current design landscape, both in Canada and the rest of the world, each designer will discuss how working with fellow creatives has shaped their current trajectory, and added new and unexpected variety to their existing work.
