Shyra De Souza | Phantom Limb
November 22 – December 21, 2013
Opening reception & Artist Talk | Friday, November 22 at 7 pm
Calgary-based artist Shyra De Souza is interested in the ways we draw meaning from illusory and dissonant experiences. Phantom Limb is a long, spine-like installation constructed from found objects: consumer products joined into symmetrical vertebrae. As the work snakes through the gallery it shifts between identities, sometimes bodily, sometimes museological, sometimes unknown Rorschach shapes suggesting other-worldly phenomena.
