Suzanne Nacha, Meghan Price: Land Line
On view October 3 to December 19, 2020
Opportunities to gather socially are being planned, we will release those dates closer to the exhibition dates.
Land Line formalizes Suzanne Nacha and Meghan Price’s collaborative social practice. While immersed in geologic terrains, the duo produced this collection of video installation and sculpture in pursuit of an embodied experience of landscape. With line as a central motif, the work emerges from an expansive approach to drawing and departs from traditional modes of artistic and scientific representation. Through a lexicon of provisional tools and actions, Land Line articulates a process of enquiry foregrounding chance, the tactile, earth’s forces and the everyday.
Built on a shared interest in human-Earth relationships, the indexical nature of rock materials and the cognitive challenge of geologic time, the collaborative practice of Meghan Price and Suzanne Nacha develops methodologies for engaging geologic sites. Employing their combined expertise in textiles, sculpture, painting and geology, they mine the earth sciences for ‘signs’ that hold the potential to connect human experience to the physical earth. Nacha and Price live in Toronto. They are individually represented by United Contemporary.
