TRUCK Contemporary Art in Calgary | +15 Window
December 6 to January 31, 2018
Closing Reception January 18, 2018 at 6 pm
The silhouette of an ashtray left on construction paper, its colour bled by the sun. A divot or flattening, as the indentations left in carpet by loveseat legs or the settling of earth upon an interred thing. An action’s afterimage treads softly but exerts real force, connecting and repelling bodies and objects across time, throughout space. Not quite the whole thing, maybe… the hole left by the thing?
Brett Bonk is invested in developing a highly specialized queer methodology. Equal parts plastic, pantyhose and perpetual instability, she organizes constellations of materials which orbit the viewer, only slightly sideways. Currently living and working in Calgary, Brett received her BFA in Painting from the Alberta College of Art + Design in 2017.
