We are happy to announce The Path to the Ginger’s Spirit, an exhibition by Sarah Bertrand-Hamel, as a result of her activity during her stay at Studio Kura.
Sarah Bertrand-Hamel is a Canadian artist based in Montreal, specialized in papermaking, drawing and installation. She got a Bachelor of Fine Arts from Laval University, and a MFA Studio Arts from Concordia University. Her solo exhibitions were held in many places in Canada, Mexico, and currently her curated group exhibition in Japan (Embassy of Canada Prince Takamado Gallery, Tokyo until Jan 28, 2016).
Fascinated by impermanence and singularity, the artist creates images that she repeats and reinterprets, fragment and recompose. Sarah is interested in transitions and shifts between these images. She traces change, wants to make time visible.
Here are some words from the artist herself.
Looking around me, I’ve been copying kanjis and drawing trees;
Curious of washi, I’ve been making strokes and pouring colours, tearing and folding;
Searching for a way, or for a word.
Exhibitions by other current artists, Betty T Doll and Rob Ball, will be also held. Please visit Studio Kura to check upcoming shows!
