Following on from her recent artist residency at Burrard Arts Foundation, German-born, Vancouver-based artist Birthe Piontek discusses the evolution of her photography practice and her multidisciplinary explorations into sculpture and installation. Her work explores the relationship between memory and identity, particularly female identity and its representation in our society. In conversation with Kimberly Phillips, curator at the Contemporary Art Gallery, Piontek will touch upon, among other projects, her current Canada Line Public Art Installation, and her new artist’s book, Abendlied (Gnomic Press, 2019), which looks at notions of heritage and belonging and revolves around the loss of the artist’s childhood home and her mother due to her battle with dementia.
Abendlied will be available for purchase at the event.
The Capture Speaker Series is presented in partnership with Inform Interiors
