Artist Tour with Daze Jefferies + B.G-Osborne

Artist Tour with Daze Jefferies + B.G-Osborne

In-person event
Saturday, April 20, 2024, 1:00 – 3:00pm
Main Gallery, Eastern Edge, 72 Harbour Drive

Join Main Gallery artists Daze Jefferies + B.G-Osborne for a guided tour of their exhibition, Transient Maternal. Daze and Oz will walk us through the gallery space, discussing their practices and the work displayed in this stunning collaborative exhibition.

Please note: This event will be scent free, and masks are required.

“As white settler trans artist-archivists, Daze Jefferies + B.G-Osborne’s collaborative practice turns to water as a counter-archive of kinship, loss, and care. Transient Maternal offers embodiments of grief and love that are emergent in intergenerational encounters and efforts to communicate with maternal ghosts through water. The loss of a mother at a young age, and the longing for a trans mother figure, guide their reciprocity, closeness, and with/holding. Using sculpture, collage, illustration, sound, and video, they aim to create an immersive environment that explores t4t tenderness, rural inheritance, and the places where continuity and impermanence touch. Beach washup, textiles, charcoal, field recordings, wax, mermaid’s purses, plastics, burnt wood, and poetry form an evocative assemblage of memories and relationships held by water.”
