RBC Work Room: Dara Humniski and Sergio Serrano-Monument

RBC Work Room is an initiative that supports the development of collaborative, contemporary art projects. In this studio-like working space, artists conceive and produce artworks onsite, resulting in a fully realized exhibition.

This second installment features artists/designers Dara Humniski and Sergio Serrano working in residence for six weeks. The artists will work to create works on paper and in various scales. Their exhibition, Monument, will explore tradition, artifact, ruins, utopias and the space between art and design.

Jason de Haan: Grey to Pink

In this project, fossilized shells perch, sphinx-like, on individual vapour spouts of ultrasonic humidifiers. Cool mist caresses the form of each fossil as if to disperse ancient mineral particles of the once-living form into, and beyond, the exhibition space. A new atmosphere is generated in which these particles appear to be inhaled and carried away by the viewer. The constant, gentle hum of the machines is accompanied by the smell of damp, prehistoric earth.

Dana Holst

Dana Holst’s solo exhibition, She’s All That, is a series of oil paintings and encaustic drawings presenting the human experience from a gynocentric viewpoint
