Featuring Candace Makowichuk - Edmonton Cemeteries Artist-in-Residence|
Celebrating the roots of photography in its purest form using a historic bellows sheet film camera and 19th century printing processes, Candace will exhibit her work in a concert setting in the Chapel in Union Cemetery.
Candace Makowichuk is a visual artist working in the medium of photography. She specializes in historical photographic processes and predominantly works with the following processes: Cyanotype, Bromoil, Gum Bichromate and Silver Gelatin. Her methodology and approach offer a moment to reminisce while at the same time celebrating the roots of photography in its purest form.
In 2017, she became the first Artist in Residence for the City of Edmonton Cemeteries. She has and currently is working on producing a body of work on her artistic interpretation of the seven municipal cemeteries and the one traditional burial ground. Shooting with both film and digital, she has captured a variety of the elements found within cemeteries - from the landscape to the decorative work of monuments and grave markers.
The exhibition will feature her a selection of her photographs presented with live music.
Ms Makowichuk is invited to Calgary by Sharon Stevens, Founder/Curator of Equinox Vigil in Historic Union Cemetery and this event is presented with the support of The City of Calgary Public Art Program.
Exhibition and performance is on two evenings with her artist talk on Friday evening only.
