Stranger Factory – March Exhibit
Dubious Beasts: Life Cycles
Stranger Factory is excited to welcome the the third installation of the “Dubious Beasts” collaborative series of shows by Leslie Levings and Shing Yin Khor. In this show, the artists explore a universe of off kilter whimsy and inquire into the development processes of their curious creatures.
Leslie Levings is a sculptor renowned for her charming and personable Beastlies series. Her dubious creatures are elegant and lost in thought, cuddled into a nook of a tree, or perched over a quiet lake.
Shing Yin Khor is a sculptor and painter. Her dubious creatures are anxious and not particularly intelligent, a slightly alarmed look on their face as they appear in a range of sculptures and watercolour paintings detailing their observed behavior.
Paired with an obsession with natural history museums, trophy heads, and cabinets of curiosities, Levings and Khor bring to Stranger Factory a delightful menagerie of colourful, beady eyed critters – bending over clutches of eggs, and encased in cocoons, awaiting their final metamorphosis.
The exhibit runs March 6th through April 4th, with an opening reception on Friday, March 6th from 6 – 9 PM. Both artists will be in attendance.
PLEASE NOTE: This is the first show at Stranger Factory’s new location!
