What better way to launch autumn than with the Canadian premiere of Wanderings, a new photographic series by the prolific Meryl McMaster. And, what better way to open this seminal exhibition than with a collaborative performance art piece, Wandering Together, with the renowned Johannes Zits. Meryl and Johannes considered working collectively over one year ago, and Katzman Contemporary is electrified that this project has come to fruition for its fall season launch.

ON VIEW: September 9 to October 10, 2015

OPENING RECEPTION: Wednesday, September 9 from 7 – 9 p
Wandering Together begins at 8 p

In Wandering Together, Johannes exposes the self-contained element of performance that comprises Meryl’s artistic process. For this collaboration, Meryl ritualistically will paint Johannes’ skin prior to the performance, transferring the energy and spirit from one artist to another. In doing so, binary definitions of gender, culture, and identity (to name a few) are distorted. Johannes will situate himself in the centre of the exhibition space, and respond live to the art and the environment via body painting. A collage of photographs documenting this creative process will be shown together with a video recording of this performance. Johannes’ body painting will be on display as part of this show until September 24 (unless it is prematurely displaced).
