WEBSITE

Eruptions is an exhibition of new and recent work by established Winnipeg artist Grace Nickel in which she collects, studies, transforms and memorializes felled trees and forest fragments in porcelain. Nickel applies an archaeobotanical lens to her investigations, referencing the past and present with regard to the life cycle of living organisms and to varied forms and functions of ceramics production. Nickel’s work also considers how the micro struggle for survival reflects the macro crises in which we find ourselves today, with climate change and resulting environmental catastrophes top of mind.

The exhibit is open weekdays between 12:00 and 4:00 pm from February 17 – March 25, 2022. Closed Louis Riel Day.

Admission is free but all visitors must book a free appointment in advance at the event website.
