On now – 18 artist prints from Life: As We’ve Known It appear in this exhibition at Vancouver’s Beaty Biodiversity Museum. Along with related installations (and an Instagram booth!) the entire series of 132 photographs will be displayed at their native 4×5 inch dimension.

If you’re in Vancouver for Thursday, April 19th please join us for the artist reception from 6 to 830pm.

PRESS RELEASE
“There is a distinct eeriness looking at an image from this series by David Ellingsen. The dark glow suspending each subject is as compelling as it is unnatural. How will these photographs be viewed by our descendants and what will remain of these species, or their human viewers? As our planet enters another mass extinction period, only the sixth in its 4.5 billion year history, the photographs in Life: As We’ve Known It respond to this anthropogenic event of unprecedented scale.”

See the complete series here.

Part of the 2018 Capture Photography Festival Open Program.

The Hospital Club presents The Baldwin Gallery’s Betwixt, exploring the organic and psychic transference between selves and species, featuring the shape-changing photography of David Ellingsen and Meryl McMaster.

Of indigenous and European descent, Plains Cree sculptural-photographer, McMaster, pits delimiting identities – Native American, Canadian, female, human – against the immediacy of her lived body in the natural world. She expresses heritage and contemporaneity as a synergistic strength of unities, rather than a struggle between opposites.

Ellingsen’s Anthropocene series is inspired by the proposed renaming of our geological epoch, as Earth’s systems are irrevocably altered by human activity. Transmuted skeletal remains, adrift on blackness, reference future and past and are both a warning and rendering of hope.

Both artists have shown in museums around the world, from The Beaty Biodiversity Museum, Canada, and the Datz Museum of Art, South Korea (Ellingsen), to the Smithsonian and the Art Gallery of Ontario (McMaster).
