Marjan Verstappen | Opening and Artist Talk

10 July 2019

10 JULY 2019 | 6:00PM

Please join us for the opening of Atlas to Nowhere by Marjan Verstappen.  Free event, all welcome.

Verstappen explores concepts of mystery, truth, and how narratives about a place can be woven through objects and drawings. Atlas to Nowhere brings together a new body of work drawn from the mid Canterbury landscape and the histories and documents held in public and private archives which speak to the relationship between mass extinction and the colonial mindset.

Verstappen  lives and works in Toronto, where she is co-director of Younger Than Beyoncé (YTB) Gallery.  This talk will give insight into her work, and how her practice of drawing, sculpture and photography have all come together in this current exhibition Atlas to Nowhere.
