Lorraine Field: Some Canadian Landscapes / Made in China
A photographic exploration of a relationship between landscape and tourism. Lorraine Field combined her interests in ceramics and photography in this exhibition of "interrupted landscapes" in which serene photographs of well-known Canadian sites (Banff, Niagra Falls, Cavendish Beach, Peggy's Cove), taken in the off-season, were interspersed with images of the typical souvenirs (mostly made in China) that tourists purchase. These occasionally surprising juxtapositions elicited some fascinating speculations about national identity, the land, and the tourist experience. Some Canadian Landscapes/Made in China was the seventeenth in our series of front alcove exhibitions, designed to present smaller bodies of work by emerging or recently graduated artists.
