Peter von Tiesenhausen: Songs for Pythagoras

For Peter von Tiesenhausen, the landscape of Alberta has been a primary source of inspiration, with sustainability being a constant thread that has woven its way through his work over the course of his long career. Most often working with natural materials such as wood, ice and the land itself, von Tiesenhausen has also incorporated discarded industrial materials such as wire cabling, glass and metal sheeting into his work. Addressing ideas of time, life, nature and re-generation, this new exhibition will engage audiences with important issues related to extraction, production and our impact on the environment. These concerns have influenced von Tiesenhausen’s approach to art and art-making. His work is both process-based and experimental with the final outcome not always known at the outset. For this new exhibition, the artist has been invited to reimagine the architecture of the AGA’s third floor gallery space, constructing an environment that will effectively transport the viewer out of the familiar and into an immersive environment of both sight and sound.

Organized by the Art Gallery of Alberta. Curated by Catherine Crowston.
