Garrett Owen Gilbart
Iron is abundant in blood and ore. Rust, a remnant of transience.
Steel is a mutable material, open to reinvention through forging and welding and, if not reworked, then returned to the earth. It reflects the modern body, reactive and vulnerable within our lifetimes; where bronze casts persist from antiquity, Buick Skylarks turn to papier-mâché in the woods.
Re:Tooling by Garrett Gilbart showcases sculptural metalwork that brazenly repels common notions of metallic permanence and rigidity by embracing the organic and transmutable qualities of steel.
Crafted by hand using contemporary industrial metalworking techniques, these objects appear like timeless relics caught in an alchemical moment of prolonged decay, yet are full of vitality, rooted in traditional craftsmanship and a love of good tools.
With a rural-based practice, Garrett Gilbart works from the colliding worlds of agriculture and contemporary art.

Elycia SFA is a queer textile artist based in Toronto. Her work explores personal narrative and the deconstruction and reconstruction of memory, as well as nostalgia and loss, by portraying these concepts in the form of handwoven cloth.
This series is an ongoing exploration of the past few years spent in varying states of lockdown, and features benign yet intimate images of the home space. Lockdowns forced us into an extremely still experience with layers of grief and challenges of acceptance. This project invited image submissions from all over the world, and asks: What areas in your space have been helpful to get you through your own grief in this time?
What spaces made you feel safe?

We shall seek a third tiger. This
Will be like those others a shape
Of my dreaming, a system of words
A man makes and not the vertebrate tiger
That, beyond the mythologies,
Is treading the earth. I know well enough
That something lays on me this quest
Undefined, senseless and ancient, and I go on
Seeking through the afternoon time
The other tiger, that which is not in verse.
-from "The Other Tiger" by Jorge Luis Borges, translated by Harold Morland
