Event Description

“The Saskatchewan Maritime Museum Presents, La Ligue Gourmand” consists of fake artifacts, museological props, and didactics outlining (my invented) histories referencing lore of innovation. At the fifty fifty gallery, I present an unusual meal in the “museum” with the pretense of promoting flamboyance, humour, and absurdity as important stratagies to elaborate on histories true and invented.

Todd Gronsdahl is an artist from Saskatchewan working in sculpture and installation. Gronsdahl’s making is a practical act, involving repurposed materials and vernacular objects. These materials, coupled with an intuitive approach to design, lead to work with a pragmatic aesthetic, like a prototype or prop. Through the use of humour and narrative, each project emerges as an inventive allegory with colorful characters that speak to themes of hubris, distrust of power, and utopian counterpoints. Gronsdahl’s artwork is an enactment of these elaborate fictions with his sculptures, in particular, functioning not unlike museum replicas or artifacts.

the fifty fifty arts collective is comprised of individuals living and working on unceded and occupied First Nations Territories, specifically the lands of the Songhees and Esquimalt Nations, as well as the W̱SÁNEĆ, Sc'ianew and T'Souke First Nations.
The programming space itself is situated on Songhees and Esquimalt Territory but engages with individuals and communities across Turtle Island.
As a collective we endeavor to deepen our own understandings of how we are implicated in the history and in the present ongoing project of settler colonialism. As members of the fifty fifty arts collective we continually responsibilize ourselves to the complex kind of space that is the fifty fifty which hosts and facilitates the dissemination of the ideas and work of others.
