If Only Yesterday Took Place Tomorrow

One of the signs of suicidal ideations is giving away prized possessions. The figure sits on a marble tombstone, staring off into space. At the base of the tombstone where the marble meets the earth, heirloom objects are dispersed throughout the pile, giving unknown representations. Maybe they're memories? Or wishes...


Andrew Harris

My name is Andrew Harris, I am a Toronto-based artist and current MFA candidate at NSCAD University. I use the medium of oil painting to explore both personal therapeutic modes of journal-style storytelling, while simultaneously speaking to the topic of suicide. For my thesis work, every artwork speaks to the many different levels and complexities of suicide and suicidal ideation. My work uses a collaboration of painting techniques, infusing both historical artwork influences, and new contemporary markmaking abstract language techniques. This (hopefully!) allows for different interpretations and fables to emerge as a result.

About the exhibition

Art is a language that doesn’t need translation. For a long time, art has played an important role in the communication between China and other countries. In the context of economic globalization, cultures from all over the world collide and fuse with each other, forming a multi-cultural network. Chinese culture and various cultures of other countries meet here, forming a strong and diverse artistic atmosphere As globalization makes the cultural and artistic exchanges between countries more frequent and more closely connected, the optimization of the international artistic ecological environment also provides new opportunities for the evolution of art. Art is enriched by exchanges and mutual learning; the development of art requires international exchanges and cooperation, the active participation of artists from all countries, the sharing of ideas, the collision of hearts and the blending of emotions.This initiative is hosted by the Sino-Canada Alliance of Arts and Culture,York University Centre for Asian Research, Sensorium: Centre for Digital Arts and Technology, the Luxun Academy of Fine Arts gallery, and the School of Visual Communication Design of LAFA, with funds from the Canada-China Initiative Grant from York Centre for Asian Research, and Double first-class project approved by Lu Xun Academy of Fine Arts.
