Prince George born Karilee Fuglem, now of Montréal, has enjoyed a notable career as an artist, having participated in exhibitions at the Oakville Galleries, the National Gallery of Canada, the Musée national des beaux-arts du Québec, the Southern Alberta Art Gallery, Montréal Museum of Contemporary Art and numerous other art centres. Her oeuvre, subtle and poetic, demonstrates her interest in exploring those things located at the threshold of perception.
As we navigate the course of our bodily journeys we are subject to a range of influences, sometimes intangible and sometimes barely perceivable or even invisible. Though we usually can't glimpse our connections to people, places or a particular time for instance, they can be felt as strongly as the substance of an important conversation. Karilee Fuglem works to give shape to this matrix of complex interconnections and experiences, often using material that is as ethereal as the concepts she explores. She has produced installations out of monofilament that flit in and out of view according to changes in the ambient light and has filled galleries with clouds. This exhibition, her first in BC, will survey previous work, setting a context for a new project that explores aspects of her birthplace.
