Chantal Bethel Holey Space Opening Reception

In Chantal Bethel’s Holey Space, we honor the matriarch, goddess, Atabey as she hunts, gathers, protects and glistens like gold in the shine of the sun. She is unmovable; the heroine, mother and the centre of her parable. Here she is already fiction, already lost, the frame of her body writhing on history pages, withering away slowly from our collective memory and what we are left with are traces.

Holey Space will be on view in the Project Space (PS) Room of the NAGB from October 27th through December 18th, 2016
