About the Program

grunt gallery's 30th anniversary programming kicked off with a residency and exhibition by Vancouver-based artist Kasper Feyrer entitled Kitchen. Taking the form of an evolving installation in the main gallery space, Feyrer’s work engages with materials and documentation from the grunt archives in the production of a new, site-specific environment. Feyrer’s starting point is the kitchen—a space that has played a central role in the gallery’s social and creative life since its beginnings in 1984. A meeting space that entertained activities, conversations, and ideas fuelled by coffee, tea, beer, and wine, it has been a venue of literal and figurative “brewing” where creative relationships have percolated over the years. The idea of the kitchen has long been a source of inspiration for the gallery, and the physical site has evolved into the present-day media lab and an exhibition space for innovative media works. More than an exploration of archival material, her work also engaged the heart of the kitchen environment: the social. Feyrer, in collaboration with the gallery, produced a series of events to activate the installation. Window paintings for this kitchen exhibition were provided by Vancouver-based artist and animator Tasha Brotherton. The gallery also produced a series of texts over the course of the exhibition and residency, written by curator Vanessa Kwan.
