Sébastien Aubin: no brighter in the middle
February 26 - April 13, 2018
A six-month creative residency is meant to offer a fruitful time for growth and development for the artist. The exhibition, Sébastien Aubin: no brighter in the middle, presents a body of seven artworks Aubin produced while at the School of Art as Indigenous Designer in Residence since September 2017. Design activities are represented by a three-dimensional work that incorporates text set in the Cree syllabic font he created. Other works are based upon found objects: orphaned shoes collected from a garbage dump near his reserve, Opaskwayak Cree Nation; gloves donated for a wall work - gloves that will ultimately be redistributed through homeless shelters in Winnipeg. Additionally, Aubin has created an animated work with sound that will be projected during the exhibition.
Within his creative practices, Aubin employs a philosophy establishing partnerships with various groups.
