Sarah Maloney and Karine Payette

Natura Humana

 

Collapse, 2009

Water Level, 2016

Sculpture / installation

Stemming from her research in botany, history and women’s studies, Sarah Maloney’s flowers serve as archetypes of beauty, but also as invitations to reflect upon such issues as the environment, the quest for emancipation and the stereotypes that go along with them.
The artist gratefully acknowledges the support of Arts Nova Scotia.

Pavlov, 2016

De part et d’autre, 2016

Sculpture

By giving animals a human posture and demeanour, Karine Payette’s Pavlov and De part et d’autre spark reflections on our social behaviour and attitudes. Filled with ambiguity and unease, they underscore the urge of certain individuals to control, manipulate and dominate others.
