The Contemporary Art Gallery welcomes the Feminist Land Art Retreat (FLAR) for the summer at the Burrard Marina Field House. Born in 2010 with a rock-concert style poster depicting mirrored images of Robert Smithson’s Spiral Jetty, FLAR transformed this seminal work of land art into something resembling fallopian tubes, while inviting the viewer to a fantasy event. This began FLAR’s conceptual and humorous subversion of familiar visual forms, including fashion, spa advertising, commemorative architecture, and aerial imagery.

FLAR will screen two recent films, Heavy Flow (2015) made for the Studio for Propositional Cinema Film Festival at MuMok in Vienna and no man’s land (2017) a new piece shown as part of the solo exhibition at ACUD, Berlin. These works typically reveal the ambiguity between reverence and ridicule that places FLAR’s critique outside of established genres.
