Digital photographs on recycled polyester sandbags, glacial sand
Open artist edition
In spring 2018, Tracy Peters’ multi-media exhibition Littoral Landscape turned Gallery 1C03 into a shoreline. In a wall-to-wall installation, a video projection of crashing waves pushed through an eroded embankment made of disheveled sandbags printed with photographs of stones. Each sandbag, titled A Piece of Shoreline, embodies the erosion and the breaking away of an ever-shifting shore.
Tracy Peters is a Winnipeg artist who has gained recognition for her immersive studio practice in which she carries out multi-sensory experiments in constantly changing environments. In these investigations, she examines the interactions between natural and human ecosystems. Many years of darkroom practice initiated her research into fragile materials and emotive surfaces, resulting in site-responsive installations and videos that are largely based in the photographic process. She has been awarded grants from the Canada Council for the Arts, the Manitoba Arts Council and the Winnipeg Arts Council, as well as residencies that include a partnership between Void Gallery and The Social Studios and Gallery in Derry, Northern Ireland, the Deep Bay Residency Program in Riding Mountain National Park, Canada, and the ArtCenter/South Florida-MAWA artist exchange program in Miami, FL. Her work has exhibited across Canada, in Europe and Australia.
