emily carr grad show 2006

Last night I went to the Emily Carr Grad Show opening. It was fun and packed with people - all elbows and walking sticks. At the beginning of the show, there was a huge pile of walking sticks, all uniquely decorated, that guests were encouraged to take. The show was massive and sprawling, and after a while, the walking stick really started to make sense. We had to rush through the last part of the show, and I didn't get a chance to examine many of the works in detail - I'll have to go back when it's less crowded. There were some good craft/art works in the show. A few of my faves: a full-size hammock made out of miniature ceramic rabbits and mice all chained together; brocade wallpaper with parts of the pattern traced over in gold paint to reveal all the hidden images within the pattern, like a fox's face; and an installation with two walls, two chairs and two people, all covered/upholstered/dressed in the same black and white patterned fabric.

The Emily Carr Institute Grad Show is on until May 22nd. Go get your art on.

UPDATE: Here are photos of the bunny hammock, some of the walking sticks and the black and white installation.
