Kyle Terrence | ’Berta Boys
April 19 - June 8
This spring, Latitude 53 introduces new film and installation work by Kyle Terrence. In ’Berta Boys, the artist and his collaborators delve into the remnants of Alberta’s cowboy-oilfield masculine mythology, embodied in the accoutrements of pick-up-truck culture and character performances.
Terrence worked with collaborators Aaron Brown and Gabriel Esteban Molina to develop characters and actions based in and critical of the cowboy mythology of Alberta, and its icons: truck nuts, lift-kits, oil slogans, and the activity of hunting. In the gallery, the work takes the form of a short film as well as several sculptural installations that connect to scenes and images within it. Each of these three artists brings a specific attention to the subject from their own experiences and practices in Alberta.
