Kim Vose Jones: Sensorium
Ann Manuel: The Worry Ladders

Sept. 11 to Oct. 30, 2015

The UNB Art Centre is pleased to welcome two distinguished New Brunswick artists to exhibit their work this fall. Kim Vose Jones and Ann Manuel will display two exciting new installations that focus on the human experiences of anxiety and worry. Please join us as we open these exhibits on Sept. 11, 2015, from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m., in Memorial Hall, located at 9 Bailey Drive.

In the East Gallery, Fredericton-based sculptor and installation artist Kim Vose Jones will create a multimedia installation entitled Sensorium. Video projection and sound will overlay sculptural representations of a fragile home in a stark landscape, mingled in continuous immersive flux between states of anxiety and calm. Inspired by the prolonged confinement of Ashley Smith and a meditation on imprisonment in general, this exhibition deals with the tensions inherent between shelter and confinement, absence and presence, protection and abandonment.

Ann Manuel’s exhibition, The Worry Ladders, will be composed of five ladders, each nine feet tall, created using materials from New Brunswick’s forests. Drawing on our conception of the ladder of success, this installation represents five worries which reflect the artist’s understanding of environmental, economic, and political issues related to the sustainability and stewardship of our forests. The Worry Ladders will be on display in the West Gallery at Memorial Hall.

Sensorium and The Worry Ladders will be on display until Oct. 30, 2015.

The UNB Art Centre is located at Memorial Hall, 9 Bailey Drive, University of New Brunswick, Fredericton. The galleries are open 9 a.m. - 4 p.m. weekdays and for special events. Admission is free to members of the public. Everyone welcome!
