Behind the Lines - Bill Horne
Since the age of ten when Bill Horne wrote his first letter to Mayor Jean Drapeau of Montreal expressing his concern about pollution in the St. Lawrence River, Horne has taken an active part in shaping the world around him. His practice as an artist has become closely woven with his role as an activist as he often draws upon those skills as a means of expressing his concerns.
Behind the Lines draws from the artist’s archive of responses to letters he has written to political and other influential figures over the years. Horne assembles elements that illuminate and feed into the concerns reflected in the letters of response that he screen prints onto material as diverse as priests vestments and plastic sheeting.
Sometimes humourous, sometimes pointed, this empowering collection of work spans four decades of activism and provides ample fodder for reflection.
Voice: An exhibition featuring artists from across BC - Various Artists
This group exhibition looks at recent artwork in a range of media by artists from across BC as Two Rivers Gallery explores the diversity, application and power of the artists’ voice. Our voices are infinitely malleable tools that are altered to say different things to different people. Through our voices we may soothe, teach and share, for instance, but they are also a means by which we assert our will. To not have a voice is more than to be mute, but to lack agency in the world. Spoken, and expressed in other ways, our voices are empowering extensions of self from the soft and self-reflective to bold resistance.
