Freedom is taking part in the Living with Washi: Japanese Paper Inspiring Daily Life – a celebration of the art of Japanese paper by The Japanese Paper Place.

We invited various artists and designers to create using washi to employ the versatility and strength of this sustainable material. The result is a collection of everything from wearable pieces to sculptural objects, blurring the boundaries between art and craft, paper and fabric.

“Whether it is someone I know, sleeping in front of me or a stranger before me on the train, I sometimes see characters I feel the urge to capture.” – Naz Rahbar

This exhibition is a collection of visual documentations of human and animal personalities that together illustrate the journey we undertake to discover ourselves. These artists contextualize both real and imagined personalities within identities of other species, reactions to environmental factors, archetypal narratives, and surrounding landscapes. Just like how we attain meaning through establishing context, the works of these artists seek meaning in personal identity in their relation to outside factors.

Polygun Collective presents
In Between Dreams by Patricia Zimecki
March 11 – April 5

Opening Reception:
Friday, March 11 at 8 pm
Live music by Gentlemen… The King at 9 pm

Freedom CC Gallery is proud to announce an exhibition of photographs by Patricia Zimecki.

In her first solo photography exhibition, In Between Dreams is a visual portrayal of Patricia’s view of the world as a space between waking life and the dream state. In Between Dreams is a reversion to the pure art of photo manipulation.

Each photograph is a double-exposure taken on a 35mm film camera. The results are a cross between the ordinary and the surreal, the fleeting and the fixed, and the impermanence of time.

About Patricia Patricia Zimecki has been working in the field of photography for over 5 years.  Her work is predominantly analog-based. Her world travels are a  primary influence on her work as well as a strong fascination with the subconscious mind.

About Polygun Polygun is an artist collective based out of the Junction in Toronto. It was founded by Mark Di Giovanni and Patricia Zimecki in 2010. Polygun is actively creating in various mediums, including photography, poster & screen prints and audio/visual works.
