Horse and Sparrow: Richard Ibghy & Marilou Lemmens

January 7 to March 11, 2010

Hours: Mon-Fri: 10am-5pm, Sat: 11am-4pm

Richard Ibghy and Marilou Lemmens, Montreal and Vancouver-based artists, have been producing collaborative works since 2002. Their engagement with language, identity, and history is pursued through re-articulations of existing systems of thought and forms of representation.

The Vernon Public Art Gallery will exhibit Ibghy and Lemmens’ latest developments in Horse and Sparrow, a project initiated in 2008, which focuses on linguistic and pictorial representations associated with economic discourse. The works in the exhibition incorporate texts, graphs, charts, video and semi-sculptural wall installations.

The exhibition is accompanied by a catalogue including commissioned texts by John Murchie and Morten Jerven.

Marilou Lemmens is a graduate of the MFA program in the department of Art History, Visual Art and Theory, UBC.
