As part of her completion process for her MES degree, Lisa Figge will be showcasing "Dust to Dust" a retrospective of sorts, encompassing documentation and sculptural elements from a selection of her public interventions and performances that were produced over the last three years.
Including images of the artist dressed in a suit of leaves and carrying a brief case on local buses and an installation of cast plaster hands on a roadside beach near the recently installed windmills on Wolfe Island, the works in this show highlight Figge's interest in issues concerning the environment and agency and reflects her desire to access a creativity that drives the ecological citizen.
Lisa Figge grew up in Manitoba and now lives in Kingston, Ontario with her family. She has almost completed her Masters of Environmental Studies where she is using art as a research tool for understanding and acting out ecological citizenship.
The exhibition is on from July 6th to August 6th, with a reception on 29th July (5-7pm). Why not check it out and also see an exhibition by local artist, Andrea Graham in the Project Room.
