Rundum Artist-Run Space is proud to present Rundum Shoecase in Vancouver, Canada!

On Tuesday, the 4th of November at 5 p.m. Nacheal Catnott (ENG) will open her exhibition Public Disturbance in the Rundum Shoecase #1. The work is located outside Emily Carr University’s South building in 1400 Johnston Street, Granville Island, Vancouver.

Nacheal Catnott’s work Public Disturbance is creating an insight into the lack of surveillance that seems to be present in Vancouver referencing the very controlling British system that she have been brought up in London, England. The work process involved taking shots at random members of the public and looking at the manipulation of the truth behind images gathered in such a way. The piece is exhibited in a public space to expose the unnerving reality of being watched.

Nacheal Catnott, born 1994, studies for a BA in both Fine Art and Philosophy at the University of Reading and is currently an exchange student at the Emily Carr University of Art + Design in Vancouver. Her practice specializes in photography, paint and film based works. She has previously had work exhibited in London at the Royal Festival Hall and along the Southbank Centre as well as the South London Gallery. She is a previous member of the Hayward Huddle founded by the Hayward Gallery in London.

Rundum Shoecase #2 is coming!

This Friday, the 28th of November at 5 p.m. Rundum will open This is now my land (pocket version) by Rikke Goldbech (DEN) in the Rundum Shoecase #2. The work is located next to an empty lot at 784 Main St, Vancouver, BC.

This is now my land (pocket version) is about property, ownership and rights. Rikke Goldbech has been occupying a lot along the False Creek area during her stay in Vancouver. The project is an investigation in space; public/private, studio/gallery, as well as an investigation of the Canadian history of conquer. By claiming her space as a newcomer, Goldbech is trying to get a position in the world. The piece consists of a stone found from False Creek and wrapped in photocopy, which together signifies the land and its occupation.

Rikke Goldbech, born 1986 in Denmark is a student at the Gerrit Rietveld Academie in Amsterdam and currently on her exchange studies at Emily Carr University of Art + Design in Vancouver. She works in various media such as sculpture, photography, video and sound. Her practice is mainly focused on working with found objects and often relates to ideas around public art, society and politics. Rikke’s art has been previously shown at the Cobra museum, Netherlands, with the program Bochumer Straße Spricht, Germany and in the Gallery Q, Denmark.

Last chance to see Rundum Shoecase in Vancouver!

 

On Monday, the 15th of December at 3:30 p.m. Jessie McNeil (CAD) will present her work Wish You Were Here! II in Rundum Shoecase #3. The exhibition is located next to an empty lot east from the railway overpass on Keefer Street, Vancouver.

 

The single tree, protected by its orange fence in Wish You Were Here! II represents an ubiquitous place, found within Vancouver’s rapidly developing and re-developing landscape. The resulting miniature work depicts a scene that may or may not still exist, standing as a record of the continuously changing cityscape. Originating from McNeil's February 2014 exhibition at Gam Gallery, this piece in Rundum Shoecase oscillates between allusion and definition, and the experience of the public and the private. While the sculpture depicts a present and past, it is also a souvenir and model of a possible future for its current site.
Located at an empty lot next to the railway, this site-specific work is placed in an urban landscape that is on the fringe of massive change. 

Jessie McNeil (b. 1987) is an interdisciplinary artist born, raised and working in the coastal city of Vancouver, BC. With her curatorial projects, collage, book media and miniature sculptures, McNeil address themes of place, collective and personal memory, tourism, language, the urban pastoral and value with an emphasis on cultural history and identity. Whether in her hometown or past cities of residence: Tartu, Estonia, Barcelona, or Paris, she draws great inspiration from the visible and historic texture of the everyday urban environment around her. 

McNeil holds a BFA from Emily Carr University of Art & Design and has exhibited locally and internationally since graduation in 2013. 

 

Shoecase #3 will stay open only for two days, until the 16th of December!

Forming / Vormi võtmine - an idea, an imitation, a mark. Beginnings and growth through physical and emotional states. By combining the mediums of photography and ceramics, this piece explores the relationships between human forms and the natural world. The self-portrait on translucent paper creates an impression of the body, through which a porcelain pieces, cast from handprints in sand can be viewed. The materials combine, imitate one another and transform, decompose. Eventually, there is no difference…

Juss Heinsalu (b. 1991) is a ceramic artist who works with non-object based forms such as site-specific installations, instruments, and performative acts. He is connected with the wood firing process, constructing kilns and helping to organizing Kohila International Ceramics Symposium in Estonia.
