Justin Apperley

Event Description

Bushed, is a collection of solarized analogue photo-sculptures presenting a romantic, if not dazed glimpse into the traditional territory of the Tr’ondëk Hwëch’in and it’s intersectional, alternative, queer, d.i.y., off-grid, transient population. Consisting primarily of portraiture, landscapes and northern stills; the work explores a drift between dystopic delirium and idealized rural living; a moment to investigate real (or imagined) self-sustaining remote communities.
Justin Apperley is an artist based in the traditional territory of the Tr’ondëk Hwëch’in (Dawson City, Yukon Territory), and explores narratives of celebration and counter-cultural empowerment, predominantly within a rural setting. Working with photography, sculpture and print media, Apperley’s practice deals with emerging themes of climate change, nomadic futures and alternative survival strategies. Apperley holds an MFA at The Glasgow School of Art and a Bachelor of Design from the Ontario College of Art and Design and the Gerrit Rietveld Academie in Amsterdam, Netherlands. Selected exhibitions include Bloomberg New Contemporaries 2019, Leeds Art Gallery & South London Gallery, Leeds & London, UK(2019), Last Futures, Tramway, Glasgow, UK(2018), and Silver Linings, Yukon Arts Centre, Whitehorse, CA(2020). Apperley was recently long listed for the Scotiabank New Generation Photography Award 2021 and has work included in the Yukon Permanent Art Collection.
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 endeavour 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.
