June Pak and Janis Demkiw

Press Release - November 2008

This new project space opened with the work of June Pak and Janis Demkiw. They have created site specific installations for this event.

Both artists work with ideas from art & design, while weaving in beauty, banality and lots of longing.

Demkiw’s sculptures explore “the intersections found in architectural spaces”. She shifts the scale to heighten awareness, plays with your expectations and suggests a narrative.

Using text and colour, Pak articulates her intentions. With her on-going project, she is “investigating the relationship and the effects of the surroundings on those who occupy that space.”

Call for Submissions

As Is Project Space invites proposals from artists working in all forms and disciplines. We seek to present installation work that is engaging and responsive to the particularities of this place; a house that is beside a school and near a park.

We welcome artists from Canada and abroad.

At the present time, As Is cannot pay artist fees but will provide the space, promotion and a celebration.
