Earthbound – Steven Beckly
September 14, 2018 @ 8:00 am - October 28, 2018 @ 5:00 pm
Earthbound, co-presented by Bunker 2 and The Bentway, is an exhibition of new works by Toronto-based artist Steven Beckly. Cultivating moments of closeness and intimacy, Beckly’s images straddle photography and sculpture. In Earthbound, various figures are entwined in a mythic botanical world. Located inside The Bentway’s skate-rental shipping container, Beckly’s photographs take on three-dimensional forms shaped by their unique habitat. Printed on various materials — opaque and translucent, hard and soft — they reflect an ethos of light, renewal, and transformation. Amid a rapidly changing landscape, Earthbound points to our primordial beginnings to regenerate an intimacy with our natural environment.
