All Roses Sleep

all roses sleep (inviolate light) includes an olfactory video by Alana Bartol (Sessional Faculty) and Bryce Krynski that blends how bees and humans experience and use the land around us. Shot using ultraviolet video, visitors are invited to see the prairie landscape from a bee's point of view and a scratch and sniff card expands on the pleasant and pungent experience of pumpjacks, grazing cattle, prairie grasses, and wildflowers. As the solitary bee searches and dreams of a rose, the work is meant to conjure questions about our shared future. With this new perspective, the landscape becomes alien and while some familiar details are lost, new patterns come into focus and familiar flowers become strange and delicious.

Organized by the Art Gallery of Alberta and curated by Lindsey Sharman. The RBC New Works Gallery features new artworks by Alberta artists and continues the Art Gallery of Alberta's tradition of supporting and promoting Alberta artists.
