Kyrgyz girls in traditional red robes brave frigid temperatures and icy winds as they fill plastic jugs with water at a stream near their family’s winter camp (4,200 metres), and load them on to their donkeys – a cold but necessary daily outing.  All women and girls wear red; after marrying, the red headdress is replaced with a white one.

Walter Phillips Gallery, Banff Centre
September 29 – December 14, 2018
Opening reception: Friday, September 28, 2018
Mountain Artwalk: Saturday, October 27, 4 p.m.

Walter Phillips Gallery is pleased to present THE CAVE, a solo exhibition of new sculpture, video, and installation work by Los Angeles-based artist Young Joon Kwak. This exhibition signals the artist's first presentation in Canada, and will explore the cultural phenomena of the 'man cave'— the refuge of masculinity within the household. Refusing this possibility for retreat, THE CAVE reflects on the cultural understandings of these spaces, and will feature a newly commissioned video collaboration with Kim Ye that responds to the site of the exhibition within the context of Banff National Park.
