SNAP is pleased to present new work from Edmonton based artist Taryn Kneteman in the Community Gallery. In 2014 Kneteman was an artist-in-residence at Kloster Bentlage, a converted monastery in North Rhine-Westphalia, Germany. Inspired by the surrounding forest, medieval reliquaries housed in the Kloster, and the practice of charcoal making, Kneteman used wood, metal, and fire to make sculptures that reference alchemy and ritual objects. Photographs taken in subsequent travels in Scandinavia and Canada capture natural and artificial materials to consider beauty, history, and human intervention in perceptions of landscape. In Everyday Rituals (survival tactics), Kneteman documents transformation to engage awareness of being. She frames wind, trees, plastic, and burning to show familiar elements and processes in new ways. Everyday Rituals (survival tactics) considers the interplay between the known and unknown, and the space between, where there is a possibility for curiosity, conversation, and freedom.

This work was made possible by support from Alberta Foundation for the Arts.

Opening Reception: September 25, 7-9 pm.

SNAP is happy to provide this programming at no cost to participants.
