The Faraway Nearby

Exhibit Date: May 12th to 21st 2018

Join collage artist Kristina Corre on May 12 at Pineapple Lab as part of the first World Collage Day, declared by Kolaj Magazine, followed by her exhibition “The Faraway Nearby“.
The Faraway Nearby in an expansion of a Kristina’s Arrivants series first exhibited at Studio Sixty in Ottawa. This series marked the artist’s early explorations into the stories and characters of her Filipina ancestry and the Filipinx diaspora. “Arrivants” is a term photo-based artist Jin-me Yoon used regarding her experience as a Korean-born Canadian, and the identity she formed after arriving on this land. For Kristina, to arrive is to declare one’s identity, to take into account what one has brought with them, and to consider the possible futures. At Pineapple Lab, Kristina will be enlarging the pieces from the Arrivants series into larger than life mixed media murals, which marks an evolution in her practise to large scale three dimensional work.

Works will be available for viewing starting May 12, 2018 to May 21, 2018.
