Our booth is a two-person presentation, showcasing works by Natia Lemay (b. 1985; T’karonto [Toronto], Canada) and Shikeith (b. 1989; Pittsburgh, PA). Exhibited together for the first time, the two artists navigate parallel histories of strife and oppression in a search for spaces of healing and solace. Lemay’s practice reimagines elements from her personal history to enact interior change, while Shikeith focuses on a speculative process, transmuting materials in a quest for spiritual refuge. Both artists deploy monochrome visual strategies to create works that are conceptually rooted in their materiality, using these constrained palettes as the foundations of powerful practices.
