Power Kids: Draw in Space
After closely examining Jen Aitken’s wood pieces Outline 1 and Outline 2 featured in the exhibition The Same Thing Looks Different, participants will make 3-D sculptures using wire, beads, and branches.
About the Same Thing Looks Different
Jen Aitken is a Toronto-based artist whose first major institutional presentation features both new commissions and a selection of existing concrete sculptures. Primarily working in sculpture, Aitken’s practice considers how we relate to space, form, and material as we move through our urban environment. Common building materials—concrete, wood, and fibreglass—are formed into unexpected and ambiguous configurations that engage with the viewer’s body and interact with the gallery’s architecture. Aitken will also debut her first video installation, animating the geometric lexicon of her sculptures into an immersive prelude to the exhibition.
