Electric Horizon ..... Robert Prenovault

Robert Prenovault is a sculptor and maker of things who currently lives in Montréal, Canada. Raised in the city and having lived for many years in the bush, his work questions the supposed distinction between nature and culture. This has led him to investigate the social and symbolic meanings of landscape as a liminal space existing at the conjuncture of human endeavour and the natural environment. Electric Horizon (1997), highlights their points of contact and connection.

Vol 32, No 3 (2007): Communicating Health

Cindy Stelmackowich is an Ottawa-based visual artist and academic with a particular interest in medical science. The picture on the cover, “handbook of SURGERY” (cover photo by David Barbour), is part of an ongoing series wherein medical books—textbooks, dictionaries, anatomical manuals, first aid primers—are made subject to Stelmackowich’s own incisive explorations. In these works, medical science’s bodies of knowledge become an important source of her work, not only conceptually but more directly as the material through the work is made. Stelmackowich has exhibited her artwork across Canada and has received numerous grants and fellowships. Currently she lectures at Carleton University where she is completing a PhD in the history and theory of anatomical illustration.

Vol 31, No 4 (2006): Sexualities

nichola feldman-kiss, a graduate of California Institute of the Arts, is a conceptual artist researching body, gaze and identity. Among her digital, analogue, and performance works is the mean body database, an extensive database of self referential surface anthropometry studies. Since 2001, she has produced figurative works from the mean body database that re-imagine the body through computer aided design and manufacturing technologies. Using three-dimensional whole body scans, a digital transparency, and a light box, she has sought to achieve shapes (105x105x20cm), like the one shown here, reducing them to the most minimal bodily attributes so that, while recognizable, they have no specific referent. They recall the body without indicating it.

Her fascination with the disturbing and uncanny aspects of new medical technologies for producing the human body and hybrid life forms is expressed in the chimaera set. First displayed as a part of the exhibition mean body, the chimaera set are a collection of composite figures created from two or more data sets derived from full body scans. feldman-kiss' studio is located in Ottawa, Canada.
