Creative Residency

August 7 – September 28 2019 – Physica – Clea Minaker
Clea Minaker is currently developing work during her residency with the Comox Valley Art Gallery which is part of the thematic program Uncover. Her installation and performance work will be presented during the upcoming exhibition of the same title, opening September 28 2019. During her residency, the artist is housed and is working on site at the McLoughlin Gardens Society artist residence.
Physica is an installation, and a time-based performance producing ephemeral projections from the live manipulation of objects, light and phenomena. Using shadow puppetry techniques, movement and manipulation, pure light and objects, this research uncovers synergistic relationships between material, gesture, and image.
