David Altmejd: The Vessel

Event at Winnipeg Art Gallery

Time Price
Every day, 11am - 5pm

NGC@WAG’s 12th exhibition to date brings the work of David Altmejd to Winnipeg. The Vessel (2011) features plaster casts of the artist’s hands which serve as heads of graceful swans in flight. By combining human features associated with the senses and a bird of symbolic stature in poetry and myth, Altmejd conjures movement and metamorphosis. The Vessel also references another kind of transformation, relating to the act of artistic creation itself. Altmejd represented Canada at the Venice Biennale of Visual Art in 2007 and was the winner of the Sobey Art Award in 2009.
