MAKE/SHIFT


Sep 11 - Oct 24

Curated by Hannah Keating

Alexis Bulman is an emerging Canadian 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 these conversations with materials and movement. In MAKE/SHIFT, the artist’s first solo exhibition, Bulman employs a disability framework to explore ableism in public space. Through sculpture and installation, she brings attention to the barriers, both physical and ideological, that continue to exist in the contemporary art world.
