Penumbra

SAAG (Lethbridge) presents "Penumbra" by Alum Svea Ferguson, curated by Kristy Trinier.

Ferguson’s sculptures expand the potential of their given material properties: what is to exist as a ground, she is able to make drape in folds, suspending the way light moves with subtle layering of form to control its opacity, density, and weight. Her sculptures remain familiar, but are entrancing because of her use of scale in relation to our bodies, the specific architectural spaces the work is sited within, and in the way the works are given care. Contraindicating the intended purposes of vinyl and industrial textiles, hand-cut into expansive arrays, exposed suspended nettings, carefully feathered masses: Ferguson’s undulating forms are given a broad play and rich palette in the spaces of shadow.
