Opening Reception: Friday, December 9
In this body of work, Christopher Saba explores notions of identity through a reconstructed version of his own family heritage. The subtle juxtaposition of contemporary culture against the backdrop of historical records forges paradoxical relationships with the artist’s ancestry, and questions it’s relevance in defining individual identity. Struggling with a Canadian identity that offers no direct path of assimilation, Second Glance is an opportunity for the artist to explore and indirectly relate to his family history.
