will today be like yesterday – will yesterday be like tomorrow

Featuring graduating projects by MFA candidates Scott Saunders, Emiliano Sepulveda, and Alexandra Spence.

Saunders, Sepulveda and Spence uniquely explore possibilities for imagining humanness as an entangled mesh of human and non-human subjectivities, phenomena and powers. Each artist mindfully considers his or her relationship with the vibrant, dynamic and uncanny living world. Their explorations are embodied, political as well as aesthetic. Each artist demonstrates a desire to understand one’s individual position within the world, as well as how other individuals, societies and cultures fit as well.  Saunder’s work combines text and textiles in installations that examine the complicated politics of development and urban displacement that surrounds and permeates his living environment on East Hastings Street.  Sepulveda’s work in sculpture and installation considers his identity as an immigrant and the labour of creating a relationship with an adoptive land that does justice to the culture he is heir to, as well as the one he finds himself present in. In her audio-visual installations, Spence traces the connections between place, identity and sound, through an examination of resonance and vibration in everyday life. 

The exhibition of a graduating project represents the culmination of a candidate’s studies, and is presented in partial fulfillment of the requirements for the degree of Master of Fine Arts.

Presented with the School for the Contemporary Arts at SFU.

Object Dialogues

Please join us for Ben Wylie's Graduating MFA Project Object Dialogues.

Object Dialogues is a meditation on light, sound, and space for 13 performers. This work consists of a series of composed actions and events that explore the musicality of non-musical actions, the perception of space, the visualization/sonification of natural cycles such as heart beats or breathing, the objectification of instruments, and the instrumentalization of objects. Through the length of this work, the performers interact with a number of objects, ranging from the exotic to the banal, revealing the performative potential of the things that surround us. The large space of the Wong Theatre is continuously shaped and re-shaped through shifting light, moving sound, and mobile performers, resulting in something resembling a living space, changing and reacting to external factors imposed upon it by the performers. This examination of how light and sound interact with space, blurs the lines between theatre, performance art, and contemporary music; as compositional material is expanded to include actions beyond those traditionally considered to be "musical".
