Current Exhibition

Nadine Baldow, Alive Matter

May 24 – July 6, 2024

Nadine Baldow’s practice is informed by the current geological era, known as the Anthropocene, where traces of human activity become embedded within planet Earth. Are we still part of nature? Or have humans created a new kind of nature? Perhaps estrangement from nature started with a fence: did the first artificial boundary create a gap between man and nature?

Her solo exhibition Alive Matter at Eastern Edge Gallery follows her recent residency (March 29 – May 11, 2024) and is questioning the relationship between “nature” and “culture” on the Avalon Peninsula.

For six weeks, Baldow investigated the landscape by walking, driving, collecting, and engaging with local experts, including fishermen.

The exhibition consists of one site-specific sculpture and one wall piece stemming from this Landscape Investigation. The sculpture is a hybrid of “dead” and “alive” materials sourced locally, such as bones, feathers, fishing gear, moss, and driftwood. It has been developed specifically for Eastern Edge Gallery’s space.

Z’otz* Collective, Bartering Futures

September 13 – October 26, 2024

Z’otz* Collective was formed by three artists with Latin American heritage, who hold a shared interest in collaborative art making. They meet on a weekly basis to create drawings, ceramic sculptures, site–specific installations, and animation. Drawing is their primary means of expression and is used to respond to each other and to what surrounds them. The direct approach enables them to produce idiosyncratic, playful images that touch on the themes of migration, transformation and regeneration.

Z’otz* uses the niche as a point of departure for the wall drawing in the exhibition space. It is a platform that incorporates elements and iconography of cultural hybridity. The artists are intrigued by the niche as a space to incubate, collect, investigate, and share stories.

The group’s name comes from the Mayan word for bat, an animal that represented dreaming and intuition in the Mesoamerican world. Their work connects to the storytelling traditions of their roots, with anthropomorphic beings and symbols that transition between the individual and collective dynamic.

Lucas Morneau, Queer Newfoundland Hockey League (QNHL)

February 6 – March 21, 2026

Queer Newfoundland Hockey League (QNHL) is a fictional hockey league made up of 14 teams, all with team names that include pejoratives used against the 2SLGBTQIA+ community. The artist’s reclamation of these terms not only critiques existing hegemonic masculinity in sports culture, it also aims to create a new, positive, and accepting masculinity for sports enthusiasts.

Miya Turnbull 

April 10 – May 23, 2026

Miya Turnbull’s upcoming exhibit will be delving into self-representation through a diverse array of mediums, presented as masks, sculptures, origami, photographs, and video. This self-portrait exploration aims to navigate themes of masking, authenticity, bi-racial identity, as well as the intricate facets of multiplicity and the fragmented self.

At the heart of this exhibition is her collection of over 100 hand-crafted masks. These three-dimensional self-portraits blend sculpture and wearability, offering a realistic yet uncanny and often distorted depiction of herself, each stemming from a plaster cast of her face. These masks are further portrayed within portraiture, video performances and traces of Miya’s body on the gallery walls. The benign gazes and expressions of the self-portraits invite viewers to engage and reflect, fostering a dialogue with the multifaceted ‘self’ represented in various forms.

Jongwook Park

June 12 – July 25, 2026

Through still, flat, and dimensional images and forms, I use visual symbolism and intuitively generated drawing compositions. The use of multiple mediums and structures suggests a translation and slippage between expression and meaning. I attempt to visualize my emotional and psychological negotiation of expressing myself between my mother tongue and newly adopted languages.

Eastern Edge Annual Members’ Exhibition
