MARIANNE BURLEW: TWINNING

November 10, 2017 – January 21, 2018
Cambridge Art Galleries | Preston Gallery
Opening: Friday, November 10, 7:00pm

Our bodies affect our selves in such intricate and complex ways. Marianne Burlew’s research focuses on the body’s connection to identity and uses the language of sensation to bridge abstract concepts of self into tangibility. Featuring two recorded memories as installations, Twinning is an open invitation to experience and reflect using presented fragments in partnership with your own body. Sisters centres around two sisters on a couch while one plays with the other’s hair, while I Miss lays you down beside a girl who longs for someone while in her bedroom. Each installation combines video, sound, sculpture, and furniture in an open arrangement.

Marianne Burlew is an installation artist whose work focuses on themes of embodiment and the senses. Burlew holds an MFA from the University of Waterloo and a BFA from York University. During her graduate studies she was able to travel to London (UK) under the Win Shantz Scholarship to work for artists Saskia Olde Wolbers and Anne Hardy. Since 2011, Burlew has participated in a variety of artist residencies and exhibitions. Such residencies include the textile studio at the Harbourfront Centre (2012-2014 Toronto) and more recently a collaborative residency with Jacques Samson for an installation at Regart, centre d’artistes en art actuel (2016 Levis, QC). She has exhibited all over Ontario as well as in Paterson (NJ) and Alexandria (VA). Her work is part of various private collections as well as the Textile Collection at Cambridge Art Galleries and the City of Ottawa Art Collection. Burlew currently lives in Ottawa and is part of the Enriched Bread Artists.
