About the Exhibition

Jetsam Warp

Chris Foster Melissa Fisher-Rozenberg

Sept 16 - Dec 31, 2017

Artscape Gibraltar Point long term studio tenants Chris Foster and Melissa Fisher-Rozenberg present Jetsam Warp, a collaborative exhibition in Gibraltar's Main Hall Gallery. This work, which came into fruition upon the reopening of the Toronto Islands, explores thematic crossovers in the artists' respective practices. Jetsam Warp puts forth selections of found objects collected by each artist as part of their studio processes. Beach garbage, architectural detritus, process offcuts, flotsam and jetsam - are reconfigured and recontextualized to create alternate realities within this immersive, site-specific installation
