Future Primitive Transmissions
New work by Marinko Jareb
Records, toys and skateboards and other art

Exhibit runs from Saturday 28 June – Friday 11 June
Reception Saturday 5 July 3PM-7PM

For Future Primitive Transmissions, Marinko has received the permission of Plus 8 / Minus (Berlin) to remix, rework, and reinterpret legendary electronic musician Richie Hawtin’s Concept series in a live “dub” techno performance at both receptions for the show; July 5th in Niagara and July 19th in Toronto (at Pia Bouman School for Ballet and Creative Movement, 6 Noble Street, Toronto).The reception, Saturday 5 July at NAC, will feature an “ecstatic dance” and Marinko is inviting everyone (young and old) to come and move and groove to deep primal rhythms during a light and bright daytime dance party. Marinko will be remixing Richie Hawtin’s Concept records live (in real time) using a variety of hand made technology and circuit bent gadgetry. Admission is free for all!Additionally, Marinko’s art work has been getting a bit of attention as of late (Pictoplasma 2014 in Berlin and Mexico, Harvest Festival major installation piece, Solo show in Brooklyn in 2015, new musical releases in fall 2014), in an effort to make a more workable studio, he needs to clear out some space to make new work for upcoming projects, so a large selection of older work will be at NAC priced to sell – please come in and have a look and bring your debit card! (NAC accepts debit and credit and cash money too).

Action Figure Photography
Laurie Damon Boese

On display at The Sanctuary July and August
Reception Sunday 20 July 2PM-5PM

Laurie Damon Boese is a Mad Scientist and Artist living downtown St.Catharines since 1992. He’s taught pottery, drawing, theatre, and science in some form or another since 1987. When Laurie started teaching the kids how to draw at the DSBN after school program in Beamsville, he started bring in little resin statues and toys for them to use as models. These objects would sit still for hours, hold identical poses week after week, and the students loved it. After posting some pictures of his toys on line, he was invited to have a little show of his own.

“Toys, if we don’t break them as children, remain tools of exploration as we age. Play continues to remind us of other worlds, shifting perspectives, delights in detail and, together, these reminders create the grounds of empathy, compassion and all that is hopeful from the spirit of childhood stories.” KATE BAGGOTT

The photographs will be on display at The Sanctuary in Ridgeway, 209 Ridge Road North for the months of July and August 2014. Call 289-321-0502 for hours of operation.
