2015 | A FOREIGN SKY: SASHA VRECA
EXHIBITION FROM FEBRUARY 18 TO MARCH 27, 2015
AXENÉO7 is proud to present the new installation A Foreign Sky by Sasha Vreca as part of our ongoing series spotlighting the work of up-and-coming artists from the Outaouais region.
Sasha Vreca is an emerging artist whose upbringing has had immeasurable impact on the subjects he tackles in his own work. Of former Yugoslavia, Vreca and his family lived as refugees in Eastern Europe for three years before he came to Canada as a young child. His work to date has dealt with the psychological aftermaths of civil unrest, purposely avoiding to ever represent the violent acts themselves. Consequently, the work he produces often permeates dark and brooding undertones, creating experiential environments filled with emotion. For his new work A Foreign Sky, conceived especially for AXENÉO7’s main exhibition space, Vreca adopts the perspective of a child’s experience of war, taking as his inspiration a traditional folktale which he brings vividly to life.
