Take a Load Off

  • VENUE: Off-Site
  • PRESENTER: Canberra Contemporary Art Space
  • WHEN: 14 December 2016 - 21 January 2017

An exhibition by Erik Krebs-Schade at CCAS City.

Artist statement: This exhibition represents an ongoing theme of figure studies – in this instance focused on the seated form and the form of the seat! Motivations include the themes of loss, celebration, memorial, cultural and gender identity. The subtle chiaroscuro styled figures and objects – spanning several eras and chairs of differing practicality, trigger numerous memories and feelings in mine, the viewer’s and the sitters’ lives. The titles – and the exhibitions’ – also reflect these ambiguities.

This exhbition is held at CCAS City. Gallery hours: Monday to Friday, 9am – 5:30pm and Saturday 9am – 1pm
