DaveandJenn, also sometimes, known as David John Foy and Jennifer Saleik, have been working together since 2004. Their varied practice weaves a long view of both human and natural histories together with the more closed off realms of private spectacles and inner landscapes. For Esker’s Project Space, DaveandJenn will install a multi-layered, saturated, and shimmering oasis in the middle of Calgary’s winter, where predators stalk and prey glow in the hot sun.
DaveandJenn’s work has been included in the Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Arts traveling exhibition Oh, Canada (2012-15); Galerie de l’UQAM’s survey of contemporary Canadian painting, Le Projet Peinture / The Painting Project (2013); THE NEWS FROM HERE: The 2013 Alberta Biennial of Contemporary Art and No End, at the Art Gallery of Alberta (2015); Thin Skin / Thick Hide at Art Toronto (2015); as well as A Natural History of Islands at the Nickle Galleries (2016).
