THRESHOLDS AND INVENTORIES
MFA SEMINAR
October 6 - 20
RECEPTION: FRIDAY, OCTOBER 7 / 5-7PM

Thresholds and Inventories immerses viewers into the intersection of diverse practices by second-year MFA candidates Masha Kouznetsova, Rylee Rumble, Alyssa Sweeney, and Sam Wagter. Comprised of various mediums, this exhibition acts as a threshold for discussion, inviting viewers to investigate their own personal inventories⁠—bodily phenomena, memories, experiences, environments, and identities.

Masha Kouznetsova records her immediate environment and transitions between places using pinhole photography, mark-making, found and handmade objects, and audio tapes. Through these recording processes, she explores her relationship to migration, time, place and no-placeness, distance, and wayfinding. The Fall MFA Exhibition features Masha’s studies for an installation that meditates on palindromes, continuity, silence, and search.

Rylee Rumble is a painter specializing in abstract expressionism, focusing on exploring and archiving her experiences with mental health through colour. Working closely with personal items she sees and uses in her daily life, the work shown in this exhibition is a physical archive for these items, as one day, they will no longer exist. 

Alyssa Sweeney’s work focuses on night photography looking at themes of psychogeography. Engaging with the experiences within the city, thinking about the forgotten, discarded, and marginalized aspects of the urban environment. 

Sam Wagter is a multimedia artist working in video, animation, digital renders/ images, and glitch. Her practice navigates the undefined space between binaries, rooted in ‘glitch’ as defined by Legacy Russell’s Glitch Feminism. She invites others to explore queerness and identity in the unexpected errors and glitches through computers, body, and virtual spaces.
