Studio @ the SAAG

The studio space at the SAAG is located at street level just south of the Gallery Store.  I have to walk through the store to get to the Studio, officially titled the StoreFront Studio.

Friday and Saturday, September 18-19, 2009 – Casting crew

I had the opportunity to work with Adrian Cooke and his son Elliot.  They came in to help me with the casting process and really got the numbers up.  I was able to get enough casts for the places at the University of Lethbridge, the Sewing Center and get more done for the last Monument at the Lethbridge Regional Landfill.

With the project drawing to a close, I used four former plexiglas plinth covers (donated by the SAAG) as containers that I filled with the supply of beeswax objects stored on the shelf in the studio.  The intention was to take the filled plexiglas boxes and stack them on top of a wooden palette and take them to the Lethbridge Landfill site on Monday September 28th where they will become the final Monument of the project.
