As part of the Go North! Studio and Gallery Tour and Photopolis: The Halifax Festival of Photography, Eyelevel Gallery proudly presents a two-person exhibition featuring artists Tanya Busse (Halifax) and Kim Waldron (Montreal). In this exhibition, both artists employ appropriated imagery (taken from collections of found and personal photographs) to create and re-construct visual narrative. Similarly, both Busse and Waldron investigate the ways in which the practice of photography is used to capture, preserve and alter the passage of time.
Tanya Busse presents three new works: Niagara, Twice, Hello, Goodbye and Sun of the Shadows/Light of the Darkness. The first is a set of images of Niagara Falls, blown up 7 times their original size and displayed in between two walls. On the right, the Canadian view of the Falls, and to its left, the American view of the Falls. Hello, Goodbye is a book of found photographs that chronicle the travels of a couple across Western Europe. Lastly, Sun of the Shadows/Light of the Darkness is simply two images of the past and the future.
Tanya Busse is graduate of the NSCAD University. Raised in Moncton, she has recently lived in Berlin and is currently residing in Halifax. Her work has been exhibited nationally and internationally, most notably within Germany, Scandinavia, Canada and the United States. She is the recipient of several awards including the Effie Mae Ross Scholarship, the Pattie Snow-Parker Memorial Scholarship and the Marguerite and Leroy Zwicker Fellowship.
