The Moving Heart
Saskatchewan Craft Council invites you to participate in an interactive exhibition by Regina artists Karlie King and Ashley Johnson.
This collaborative exhibition between ceramic artist Karlie King and dancer Ashley Johnson provides an interactive space where the audience can consider how anatomy and personal experiences connect us all. Sound installation created by Jeff Morton using augmented steel guitar, piano and sound recording of Ashley’s heart beat during an echocardiogram.
King works in a variety of media and forms; her sculptural works in this exhibition — ceramic anatomical hearts — are meant to be held, sensed, and touched to connect us with our own bodies.
Johnson has researched her own heart condition and interviewed medical professionals to translate anatomical language into a vocabulary which inspires her movement and poetic works.
The artists would like to acknowledge the support of The Canada Council for the Arts and SK Arts in the creation of this work.
