Wpg Free Press: ‘For my dad’ installation at Arch 2 Gallery until Dec. 15
December 6, 2013 —
The Winnipeg Free Press reviewed the current installation by Sherry Walchuk at ARCH 2 Gallery in the Faculty of Architecture’s Architecture 2 Building. Running until December 15, the show “For my Dad” is Walchuk’s response to her father’s fears about his death.
As the story reads,
Drawing inspiration from her childhood surroundings in Mission, B.C., as well as her own far-reaching imagination, Walchuk envisions an array of fantastical spaces and impossible machines designed to ease the transition into death. She balances the morbid subtext of her work with a whimsical sensibility and an incongruously cheery outlook which, while occasionally unnerving, lends the art much of its weird charm and pathos.
