Tia Halliday & Megan Dyck: The Laboratory of Spatial Bemusement

September 8, 2018 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm MDT

Reception & performancwe Sept 20 from 5-8 pm as part of Beakerhead.

The Laboratory of Spatial Bemusement is a collaboration between artists Tia Halliday and Megan Dyck is a series of moveable kinetic sculptures and dance-based performances embracing a unique and uncanny union of kinesthetic and pictorial vocabularies;  Emphasizing design and accoutrement reminiscent of 18th century French furniture and textiles and modern interior design, the artists invite viewers to engage in a tactile and movement-based consideration of luxury and hybridized domestic objects.

In a bold gesture against Aristotle’s hierarchy of the senses, which positions sight as the most import vehicle for sensorial experience, Halliday and Dyck emphasize a rich and multimodal engagement with material, pictorial and spatial phenomena through a playful merger of art and kinetic engineering.
