MAKE/SHIFT

Gallery 1 / Gallery 2
Sep 11 - Oct 24

Curated by Hannah Keating

Alexis Bulman is an emerging artist from Prince Edward Island, currently based in Montreal. Her performance, sculpture, and installation work frequently draws on community and collaboration to explore themes of trust, care, belonging, and access in public space. The artist’s investigations are achieved through deep engagements with materials and process. From lumber to sidewalk salt to discarded household objects, Bulman uses materials as sites for sharp and, at times, playful intervention, relying on the instincts of her own body to inform her conversations with materials and movement. In MAKE/SHIFT, Bulman uses sheets of drywall and the gallery’s physical architecture to bring attention to the barriers, both physical and ideological, that continue to exist in the contemporary art world. Employing a disability framework, the work invites audiences to explore ableism in the gallery setting.

This is a workshop inspired by acts of sensory translation and experimental approaches to access, developed by Aislinn Thomas and presented alongside MAKE/SHIFT (a solo exhibition of new work by Alexis Bulman). This iteration of the Archive of Sensation attempts to accumulate a vocabulary for and record of sensory experiences of Bulman’s Remodel series.
