Field Doll by Heather Benning

August 10, 2018 @ 6:30 pm - 9:00 pm

Opening Event: August 10th, 7-9pm
Artist Talk: August 10th, 6:30-7pm

All are welcome – admission is free!

The Field Doll will be taking up residence at Touchstones during the late summer and fall of 2018 and will also be making an appearance at several iconic spaces throughout the city of Nelson, including the Big, Orange Bridge (BOB).  Benning has exhibited the Field Doll both in Canada and the US by placing the work in the context of each specific place via photographs which is an essential part of the process and presentation.  The work is an irreverent ode to place and change and the proportion of both to the viewer and their perspective.  The doll is dropped into scenes, as if by the whim of a petulant child, and there is a whimsy and wackiness to this large scale installation piece which underlies the inherent sadness (and down-right creepiness) of the cast off doll in unexpected places.

The Field Doll exhibition runs from August 11th – October 28th (Gallery B)
