Some Solitary Beacons – Erik Osberg 

  • Opening Reception – October 10: 7 – 10pm

Some Solitary Beacons will be Erik Osberg’s first solo exhibition in Edmonton. For this exhibition we will feature four recently created works in the CPI gallery space, including a mural of individually applied kisses created by Osberg during an endurance performance lasting 10hrs on October 3, 2014. This performance was open to the public, and CPI hosted a dinner & discussion in the house starting at 6pm.  Soup and bread was served; no discussions on an empty stomach!

The other works include a stereographic, nearly abstract video loop, an interventionist sculpture as well as an 8×12 foor grid of 4×6 inch photographs. Woven through this collection is Osberg’s query with worship, technology and the cliché.
