ABOUT THE EXHIBITION:
FLOURISHING: SOMEWHERE WE STAY AUTHENTIC is the second exhibition in the FLOURISHING series, featuring Maanii Oakes and Richard Harlow. Hailing from opposite sides of the country, these two artists converge to present work illustrating the inescapable impact of one’s environments, natural and human. SOMEWHERE WE STAY AUTHENTIC offers the audience glimpses into the artists’ efforts to navigate potentially overwhelming terrain, negotiating their own versions of landscapes in which they are able to thrive. We can never truly escape our past or the forces that have brought us to the here and now, but perhaps in looking honestly and unflinchingly at who and where we are, we open ourselves up to the potential of co-creating of what will be. Drawing from the senses to invigorate new ways of experiencing visual art, this joint exhibition embodies an interdependent exchange of processes that uproot the narrative of the gallery setting. Oakes uses the performance of skin stitching and handpoke tattooing, as well as sculpting with artificial red and black sinew sewn through raw deer hide. Harlow uses painting to evoke and invite new sensations through touch. The two met for the first time at the Flourishing artist retreat in Halifax and quickly connected as artists and friends. What started as a reciprocal interest in each other’s disparate experiences progressed to sharing sculptural painting techniques and Indigenous teachings. Their 3D butchery scene is a tactile combination of their exchange of skills and knowledge.

In addition to SOMEWHERE WE STAY AUTHENTIC, Tangled is presenting THREE WINDOWS: FLOURISHING, a immersive multimedia installation as part of Art Spin’s Holding Patterns, and MAD ONES: FLOURISHING, a play exploring the juxtaposition of madness and psychiatry.
