A PEA CAN BE.png

A Pea Can Be Chopped Up and Reassembled into the Sun

Phomohobes, Paul Robles, Gerry Ruecker, Rhayne Vermette​

curated by Sandee Moore

The Banach–Tarski paradox in geometry proves the counter-intuitive idea that "a pea can be chopped up and reassembled into the Sun." While cutting up and reassembling a ball to increase its volume confounds basic geometric intuition, the notion that the blade is not destructive but creative is familiar magic to collage artists. 

The four artists and collectives - Phomohobes, Paul Robles, Gerry Ruecker, and Rhayne Vermette - in A Pea Can Be Chopped Up and Reassembled into the Sun skew norms and uncover new ways of thinking about the world generated by illogical juxtaposition.

Outside the Box Display Case
I am completely serious. by Michael Gronnerud

Skateboard decks become canvases for illustrator, writer, designer and long-time skateboarder Michael Gronnerud. His absurdist humour and colourful illustrations, published on Instragram under the handle sourmilk, will tickle your funny bone in a way that's certain to be more enjoyable than bailing off one of his boards.

DATES

August 4 - September 29, 2021

the dig: Linda Duvall & Jillian McDonald

Collaborating with the community in a peer-based learning framework, the artists will explore excavation as a method of interacting with the land.

 

In particular, the artists intend to activate emotional connections to the land through digging and exploring history as laid down in the soil. Research in summer 2021 will be followed with free public events and a "lab" in the AGR's main gallery in Summer 2022.

A Pea Can Be Chopped Up and Reassembled Into The Sun: Phomohobes, Paul Robles, Gerry Ruecker, Rhayne Vermette

essay by exhibition curator Sandee Moore

What do the magician, the mathematician and the collage artist all have in common? Exhibition curator Sandee Moore connects how these three figures cut up and reassemble bits of the world to create more than what they've started with. She carves up the exhibition into an imagined set of artists materials - the cut, the rabbit/duck, the frame, infinity, the impossible - and describes how artists working in collage create more than the sum of their assembled materials, just as the Banach-Tarski paradox from theoretical geometry proves that a sphere can be cut into disjoint subsets and reassembled to create a greater volume than the original sphere.

Outside the Box Hallway Gallery
Return To The Garden by Gerri Ann Siwek

Artist Gerri Ann Siwek explores gardens in various habitats - urban, prairie, grassland and farm - and media - watercolour and encaustic.

Says Siwek: "At times, the garden can appear as a complex earthly paradise or Eden. Other times, it can become an endeavour of toil with uninvited visitors. The garden is like a microcosm of the universe, containing and attracting a variety of species and organisms. All living things come together to create a biodiversity that makes the garden a good place."

Between Us:
long-term creative partnership between artists and bees

Between Us is a long-term creative relationship ­– part mentorship, part collaboration – connecting senior artist Aganetha Dyck with selected artists, beekeepers and honeybees in Regina, Yorkton, Swift Current, Estevan and Prince Albert, Saskatchewan. 

 

Between Us refers to the distances and differences between us, especially evident during social isolation due to COVID-19. The project title also refers to the wondrous experiences that bind us together; "us" includes humans and non-human collaborators.
