Tracy Peters – 2015 Deep Bay Artists’ Residency

Tracy Peters is in residence at the Deep Bay Cabin September 21 – October 4

The Artist: Tracy Peters is a Winnipeg-based artist who uses photography, video and installation to explore the ways that organic and human-built environments overlap. In the past year, Tracy has had solo exhibitions at aceartinc. in Winnipeg, the Comox Valley Art Gallery in Courtney, B.C., and The Social Studios and Gallery in Derry, Northern Ireland, where she has recently completed an international residency through a partnership with Void Gallery.

Residency Project: Tracy will create a new series of photo-lumen prints inspired by the decline and regeneration of a forest floor. She will respond to the forest as a system that is both deep-rooted and in a state of decay. The remote setting will provide a space for uninterrupted multi-sensory exchange, insect and wildlife discovery, and haptic experiments that collect data through the passage of time and weather.

Meet the Artist: Saturday, October 3rd at 2:00 p.m. at the Visitors Centre. Tracy will give a presentation about her recent project ‘SHED’ that took place in a wooden granary on the outskirts of Winnipeg.
