"Those isles of yours that wait for me", an exhibition of work by Calgary-based artist Nicole Kelly Westman and Ediburgh-based artist Benny Nemerofsky Ramsay, takes up the irresolute feelings of longing for a place, a time, a connection, a person. Romance – but not just romantic love, to be clear – threads the works in this exhibition; Westman enkindles notions of running away, the impossibility of being in a place, and the unrelenting impetus to connect to those afar, despite the unbreachable distance between her and such imaginary others, while Nemerofsky Ramsay unfurls the inherent intimacy of exchanges across time and place, both written and floral.
