Samantha Burns has been invited to attend the Roundtable Residency program this July and August to create new sculptural works. Roundtable is an annual 5 week long artist residency program hosted by the Dragon Academy in downtown Toronto, Canada. The goal of the residency is to provide artists with a free space in which to work on distinct projects within a greater peer-based community.
While attending, Samantha will be expanding on a past body of sculptural installations. She will use this time to focus on new approaches and materials for her time-based sculptural works. While in residency she intends to investigate precarity as a metaphor for the body in recovery expressing vulnerability and strength surrounding these times.The conclusion of the Roundtable residency will be an exhibition in August showcasing all the artist works. Additionally Samantha plans to use her time in residence to plan works for an exhibition she has at Southern Louisiana University in October.
