Kika Thorne: THE SUN

5 January 2019 through 26 January 2019
Reception for the artist Saturday 5 January 2019, 4pm

Curated by Christopher Brayshaw

Solar panels power a projection of the sun.

The projection will be visible every Saturday at 4pm throughout the month of January. Additional exhibition events will depend on the weather, TBD.

Artist and filmmaker, Kika Thorne’s practice oscillates between elastic poetics and pragmatic ecologies. Kika received her MFA from the University of Victoria, BC and has exhibited extensively including projects at Berlinale Forum Expanded (Berlin), Abrons (New York), Contemporary Art Gallery (Vancouver), the Power Plant (Toronto), E-Flux (global tour).

The exhibition is made possible through a material alliance between Portable-Electric and the NASA Solar Dynamic Observatory. The exhibition is also supported by Eileen Sommerman, Marleen Hoolboom, Christopher Brayshaw, Jane Hutton and Adrian Blackwell.
