And All of Everything
The Art Gallery of St. Albert (part of the Arts and Heritage
Foundation) is preparing for the launch of its newest exhibition that will allow visitors to wander
the space between consciousness and dreaming. And All of Everything launches in the
Gallery’s main exhibition space on June 16.
This exhibition is an immersive audio/visual experience. Viewers are met by a single
monumental screen floating in the center of the space. Two minimalist experimental films play in
a never-ending loop, created by visual artist, Brad Necyk. The films are inspired by two iconic landscapes: the arid deserts of Joshua Tree, California and the lush forests of Avatar Grove on Vancouver Island. Accompanied by unearthly tones composed by Gary James Joynes, the exhibition transports the visitor to an extraordinary digital environment.
“We are thrilled to showcase these two artists,” says Art Gallery of St. Albert’s Curator, Emily Baker. “Gary James Joynes and Brad Necyk are no strangers to collaboration. Their individual artistic practices have involved noted and prize-winning collaborations with other artists, community members and industry professionals.”
The works leave the viewers reflecting on the nature of time, consciousness, ecology and
climate change. Visitors can experience And All of Everything until August 13.
