Joanna Rogers with “In Memorium or The Wake of Progress”

Salt Spring National Art Prize (SSNAP) Finalist Exhibition

Mahon Hall, Ganges, Salt Spring Island
September 22 to October 21.
SDA member Joanna Rogers was one of 49 finalists for this bi-annual award . Her wrok was selected by a jury (David Garneau, Denis Longchamps and Naomi Potter) from 2160 submissions from 1227 Canadian artists. 
In Memorium or The Wake of Progress explores ideas of obsolescence and the waste produced by the consumption of the new. The panels were hand woven using cassette tape and mercerized cotton in an overshot pattern. The form was inspired by a suit of armour from the Kiribati people of Micronesia on display in the Museum of Anthropology in Vancouver. Cassettes are a medium of the past, overshot patterns are out of fashion, the Kiribati people no longer create their armour. Tempus fugit.

A meditation on issues of memory and selfhood, illness and sometimes, recovery.
