About the Event

Teresa Dorey’s sculptures rise from time and effort to embrace us with clay and curving ambiguous bodies. Each form considers how we react to movement, to touc,h to loss. They are vessels for connection, the embodiment of shared air, shared experiences. The effort was made for her and for us; our imaginations create what we need most from her forms. With textures of rock and skin, in forms that angle and hollow, earth tones and love tones, Dorey has created a collection of ceramic works that captures the aesthetic response to empathy.

Teresa Dorey (BFA Concordia University 2018) is an interdisciplinary artist based in Tiohtià:ke/Montreal. Her practice involves understanding the body through haptics and intimate interactions with objects, materiality, and research. Dorey has participated in residencies, and been published and exhibited across Canada. She has been the recipient of various grants, most recently from Canada Council for the Arts. http://www.teresadorey.ca/
