Kenzie Housego: I??U


- October 15, 2023    
All Day


Art Gallery of Alberta
2 Sir Winston Churchill Square, 99 Street & 102A Avenue, Edmonton, Alberta, T5J 2C1

Event Type

Kenzie Housego’s exhibition I??U blends embroidery with digital technologies to explore how flirting and courtship have changed over time. I??U simultaneously investigates the social meanings of flowers, embroidery patterns and emojis in text and sexts. Her textile-based practice combines technological components to create interactive works that both sense and communicate with visitors to the exhibition. Some of the work in the exhibition will react when visitors come close to them and others have phone numbers that you can text. The ­artwork highlights how romantic communication is coded, transmitted, interpreted, and misinterpreted via technology.
