Exploring notions of “foraging” from both a cultural and curatorial perspective, this project will bring together five contemporary objects from Newfoundland and Labrador visual artists, musicians and writers. As an independent curatorial project, the selected works will be displayed in a traveling custom-made cabinet, and accompanied by an original text exploring the contextual and critical relationships between its contents.
To research for this project the curator traversed the hills, foraging with well-known chefs, gatherers, and local knowledge holders to develop a unique curatorial framework that will marry and bring new attention to these artists works.
