Event Description

Transpiring explores the human experience of transition by analyzing the way rainwater moves through a plant’s interior and escapes as vapour. Through her installation of contact-prints made with rainwater, Debra Gloeckler reflects on the water cycle’s stages of transformation, interconnection and renewal as she navigates significant life changes. Sunlight-sensitive paper, plant and soluble inks document her physical interactions with photosynthetic plant life and daily weather occurrences. Permeated with elements from her surroundings, the work embodies the uncertain internal and external landscapes of our rapidly shifting climate and a world in flux.
Debra Gloeckler is a visual artist who explores natural processes and the human experience of transition. Working outdoors, she engages attentive practices and ephemeral materials to consider our individual responsibility to attune with nature. Debra was born on southern Vancouver Island in the same community where she grew up, raised her family, and continues to live inspired by its forests and beaches. She received a Diploma of Fine Arts from the Vancouver Island School of Art. Her current work is informed by community collaboration to protect pollinators and native plant habitats. Debra lives and works as an uninvited guest on the unceded territories of the Tsawout, Tsartlip, Tseycum and Pauquachin First Nations (Saanich Peninsula, BC) and values the W̱ SÁNEĆ Peoples’ time-honoured, caring and culturally important relationships with land and water.
