Earthlings is an exhibition of visionary ceramic sculpture and works
on paper, produced both individually and collaboratively, by seven
contemporary artists. Otherworldly, surreal, magically figurative, and
underpinned by complex narratives, the works in this exhibition are the
products of a range of deeply personal practices that are informed by
idiosyncratic realities and myths, real and imagined spaces, sensuality,
and spirituality.

Ashoona (Cape Dorset), Boyle (Toronto), and the ceramic artists of
Matchbox studio in Rankin Inlet share a handcrafted, intuitive approach
to transformative imagery that is as sympathetic as it is culturally
distinct. The exhibition will feature recent and landmark works by each
artist as well as collaborative explorations, including sculptures
produced in September 2016 by Pierre Aupilardjuk, Shary Boyle, and John
Kurok while in residence at the extraordinary Medalta in Medicine Hat.
