This Friday marks the culmination of Fredericton based artist-in-residence Yalda Bozorg’s month long stay in the Ewart Duggan House. Yalda will be opening her doors to the public this Friday July 27th from 3:00pm– 6:00 pm to share her artistic research and explorations in an exhibition titled “Walking Through a Nightmare”. Visitors are invited to stop by and chat with the artist and have a look at what she’s been working on over the course of the past four weeks. Yalda will also be leading an intimate evening exhibition tour on July 27th from 7:00 – 8:00 pm. Due to limited space please RSVP in advance for the tour by contacting Esplanade Guest Services at (403) 502-8777.
Yalda is a ceramist and multi-media artist who embraces a variety of mediums including porcelain, metal, textiles, sound and digital images as well as 3D and virtual reality technology. She holds a master’s degree from Cardiff School of Art and Design as well as a Bachelor of Applied Arts from University of New Brunswick. During her time in Medicine Hat Yalda has been focused on developing work based on her own personal experiences with depression and mental health issues. The residency has been crucial in providing time and space for testing new materials and technologies and exploring new techniques and processes such as model making, mold making and site specific installation.
