ELISSA CRISTALL GALLERY | artoffice is pleased to present Silence of the Sea an exhibition of photography, video and sculpture by Vancouver artist Valerie Durant.

In this exhibition Durant reflects upon the climate crisis and human impact upon the natural world. The installation draws a relationship between resource extraction, deforestation and the consequences on oceans, sea life and on future generations, considering the fluid and seemingly invisible interconnectedness between the land and the sea.

Artist Talk and Community Dialogue:  Saturday April 15, 2 – 3 pm.

Valerie Durant’s art and research  practice is grounded in sustainability, social and climate justice. She will discuss the photography and video works installed within the gallery space, considering the abject beauty reflected in the works. Participants are invited to engage in a dialogue about human impact upon the natural world. Space is limited, reserve your place HERE.

This event is part of the 2023 Capture Photography Festival Events Program.
