Lindsay Lauckner Gundlock: Familiarity in the Foreign

April 30, 2016 - June 05, 2016

Opening at RMG Fridays: May 6, 7-10pm

“Every dreamer knows that it is entirely possible to be homesick for a place you’ve never been to, perhaps more homesick than for familiar ground.”

― Judith Thurman

This ongoing series has been shaped during the continuing travels of Lindsay Lauckner Gundlock. The photographs were taken during cross-continental road trips in a family-filled car, to explorations of a new “hometown” in a different country. The images represent the quiet moments that she found among the chaos of travel, as well as the pieces of a place that she grasped onto, and that in return, etched themselves onto her.

Gundlock earned a BFA. in Visual Arts from York University and has been a recipient of both Ontario Arts Council and Toronto Arts Council grants. Her previous work centred around the idea of home and tales of the occupants that lived within the walls.

Lindsay Lauckner Gundlock was the CIBC Wood Gundy Emerging Artist winner of RMG Exposed 2015. In conjunction with this exhibition, her photograph Coin Operated Binoculars will be displayed in the Core21 window space in downtown Oshawa until August.
