Artist-in-Residence, Alexis Bulman

Connexion Artist-Run Centre is pleased to welcome Montreal/PEI-based artist Alexis Bulman with her series of public sculptural interventions, Bound Between Seasons.

Each fall and winter, colourful forms begin to emerge on the properties of homes throughout the country. These tarp-swaddled objects are often familiar but not entirely identifiable. Bound Between Seasons is a series of strange sculptures that subtly connect this phenomenon with the human form, physical difference, and the artist’s experience with disability.

During the residency period from September 29 to October 11, Bulman will be working from Connexion’s Charlotte Street Arts Centre location and wrapping objects stored on properties throughout Fredericton. These sculptures will remain bound through the winter months and reemerge during spring thaw.

Alexis Bulman graduated from NSCAD University in 2013 and employs her training by assuming the role of a facilitator/ builder of performative drawings, temporary installations, sculpture and video work that translate the patterns of her physical movement and bodily occupation of space into visual form. Bulman’s work embraces her invisible disability by integrating physical difference into pieces naturally and without compromise by studying and celebrating the behavioral similarities between body and place.

Based out of Prince Edward Island and Montreal, QC, Bulman has exhibited in group exhibitions and festivals including The Hamilton Art Gallery, The Robert McLaughlin Gallery, The Saint John Arts Centre, The Museum of Canadian Art and the Confederation Centre Art Gallery. Additionally, Bulman was a BMO 1st Art Award finalist, and has received support from the Canada Council for the Arts.

Please join us for an Artist Talk on Thursday, October 4 at 7:00pm in the Charlotte Street Arts Centre auditorium. Admission is free, all are welcome to attend.
