Images and Desires, Carly Fern Ellerbock

Images & Desires

Opening Friday 3 November 6-8 pm

Exhibition dates: 3-26 November


In late 2016, Carly Fern embarked on a self-directed creative research tour of Indonesia, North America and Canada. During this journey Carly became bewildered by the state of world, taking solace in the one-bedroom apartment of a good friend in Toronto. It was here that Fern found comfort in the subtle art of the daily ‘selfie’. By producing a new portrait every day, for 60 days, the startled-artist began to repair her shattered soul, creating a compelling reflection of her inner world. Images & Desires is a triumph of imagination through handheld digital media, demonstrating the capacity of social media to help us connect to our stories and our community.
