Artist: Brittany Reitzel
Date: September 10 – October 2, 2021
Location: Alternator Centre For Contemporary Art, Members’ Gallery
Now on view in the Members’ Gallery of the Alternator Centre for Contemporary Art is ‘Grounding’, a body of work that documents artist Brittany Reitzel’s process of grounding herself through creating site-specific artwork on the unceded traditional lands of the Syilx nation.
‘Grounding’ is an exhibition that documents artistic embodiment, using clay, the body, and the land as a form of expanded landscape painting. Walking and observing are integral in creating a ritual with the land. As an artist and a settler on unceded Syilx territory, Brittany Reitzel’s artistic practice allows her to reflect and heal her relationship to the land here. She works on the ground with her body and materials that speak to the real and tactile experiences of the Okanagan. Reitzel participates in the conversation of how to move forward in care and respect for the lands we live on.
‘Grounding’ will be on view in the Members’ Gallery from September 10 to October 2, 2021.
The Alternator Centre for Contemporary Art is open Tuesday to Friday, 11am – 6pm, and Saturday 11am – 4pm. You can learn more about this exhibition at www.alternatorcentre.com.
