“In its presentation of installation, bookworks, embroidered objects and video, Confluence is the result of Saskatchewan artist, Susan Shantz’, artistic and scientific exploration into the water sources that sustain our province: from the glaciers in the Rocky Mountains of Alberta water flows across the prairies in the South and North Saskatchewan Rivers, joining to create an enormous delta near the Manitoba border. Shantz states, “While I experience the river near my home as a natural phenomenon and place of beauty, after learning more about the river from scientific and environmental perspectives, I have come to realize it is a highly-managed water source. It sustains us, but with a cost for those downstream. Drawing on field trips to sites along the river, I use a variety media (from textiles to videography) to consider the currents that connect us in this prairie water basin.” Shantz’ work encourages viewers to consider the interconnectedness and fragility of our water sources, the environmental impacts of human progress on our water systems and how these impacts will ultimately affect us all.”

“I’ve been a musician all my life. Alongside classical training in my youth… I sensed music in the hills, notes in the clouds, mantras from the trees. Most of all I could hear my own song. I learned of Nada yoga (the yoga of sound) while studying yogasana; it described the natural experience of intuitive ‘sounds’ as part of a centuries old tradition … I sought out further study leading me to practice as a sound artist” -Sandie

Exhibition Essay by Rose Bouthillier
“Julie Oh’s artistic practice considers found objects as powerful vessels for the human experience: mortality, labor, faith and freedom. The Saskatoon-based artist works from the realm of the everyday, initiating a period of sustained engagement with collected materials. Oh works instinctually by allowing the installation of objects to each hold space within the gallery, offering an entanglement of conceptual readings that address the aura of their presence.”
