In Carder-Thompson’s ‘Spanning’, traditional spinning wheels are modified as aides to facilitate spiritual communication. These altered technologies harness the potential to narrow the gap that separates the past from the future in an effort to speak across the veil. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
‘Spanning’ provides access to persons long dead and those yet to be born, who are listening while we work. ⁣

Lydia Santia’s ‘Inventory’ bridges the gap between artistic and consumer collecting. The gallery is revealed as a storage space where objects are stripped of function, aestheticized, and placed in suspended animation until further notice. ⁣
⁣
An inventory is a collection of items, goods, and contents. ‘Inventory’ sheds light on the human relationship with objects and the categorization of objects as inactive clutter. ⁣

Tomorrow is the final day for current exhibitions ‘Selections from the Peter Lamb Becher Collection’ and ‘Ido Govrin: Philosophical Archeology Space 2009-2019’ at McIntosh. If you haven’t already, be sure to stop by tomorrow between 10am and 5pm to see these exhibitions before they close! ⁣
⁣
Please note that McIntosh Gallery will be closed from Saturday, July 27 to Thursday, August 8 for installation. Regular gallery hours will resume with new programming on Friday, August 9.
Current exhibitions continue through July 26 at McIntosh. Pictured here is @westernuvisarts PhD candidate Ido Govrin’s thesis project ‘Philosophical Archeology Space 2009-2019’. ⁣
⁣
The exhibition examines the archive and the index through a large-scale interdisciplinary installation. The archive contains the artist’s work from the previous decade and is not fully accessible to the viewer. The index comprises a series of photo-litho prints on Japanese Washi paper sheets. Incorporating collage work, sound, and ephemera, these works form constellations rendered and conceived by archeological art-making. ⁣
⁣
McIntosh offers free admission to all from 10a.m. to 5p.m. daily, and noon to 4p.m. on Saturdays. All are welcome!⁣

The Peter Lamb Becher collection provides a rare and intimate opportunity to see some of the earliest works depicting London, Ontario, within the context of a unique family collection developed over 180 years. The Bechers, one of the original founding families, were prominent in law, medicine, politics and the social life of the city. Their house, Thornwood, located at 329 St. George Street and seen in the image above, is a rare example of a 19th century estate house, designed in the contemporary Gothic Revival style and built by Henry C. R. Becher.⁣

Ido Govrin (b. 1976, Jerusalem) is a multidisciplinary artist. He holds a BA in philosophy from Tel-Aviv University, an MFA from the University of Toronto and is currently a doctoral candidate in the Department of Visual Arts at Western University. 'Philosophical Archeology Space 2009–2019' is his thesis exhibition.
