Steven Beckly: Earthbound
Bunker 2 at The Bentway
250 Fort York Blvd, Toronto
September 15 – October 21, 2018
Exhibition hours: Saturday & Sunday, 12 – 5 pm or by appointment
Bunker 2 and The Bentway are pleased to co-present Earthbound, an exhibition of new works by Toronto-based artist Steven Beckly. Cultivating moments of closeness and intimacy, Beckly creates images that straddle photography and sculpture. In Earthbound, various figures are entwined in a mythic botanical world. Located inside The Bentway’s skate-rental shipping container, Beckly’s photographs take on three-dimensional forms shaped by their unique habitat. Printed on various materials—opaque and translucent, hard and soft—they reflect an ethos of light, renewal, and transformation. Amid a rapidly changing landscape, Earthbound points to our primordial beginnings to regenerate an intimacy with our natural environment.
