About this Event

Join us on Saturday September 14 at 2:00 PM to learn more about the Art Gallery of St. Albert’s current exhibit: Boundary/ Time/ Surface.

Created by Sydney Lancaster, an interdisciplinary artist from Edmonton, Boundary/Time/Surface is derived from documentation of the shoreline at Green Point NL and works the artist created there as part of a residency at Gros Morne National Park in 2014.

Lancaster explores the human understanding of natural processes and different scales of time, and the physical space embodied within them. The central pivot of the exhibition is a large-scale, multi-panel projection-mapped video installation. This video work documents the creation and ultimate destruction of a 150 metre-long sculpture built along the internationally recognised scientific boundary separating the Cambrian and Ordovician periods in geologic history.

This ephemeral work questions territory and permanence, providing further insight into the natural and human history of this area.

Dr. John Waldron, Structural Geologist at the University of Alberta and Adjunct at Dalhousie University provided scientific input and practical support for the realization of this work.
