jerry ropson: to kiss a goat between the horns
Jerry Ropson is part of a new generation of Newfoundland and Labrador artists who explore what it means to come home. After a long time away, Ropson chose to spend a year reconnecting with his hometown of Pollards Point. This installation brings together drawings, video, and sound to provide an informal and compassionate look at everyday life in rural Newfoundland — ranging from family history, to conversations in sheds, to hunting excursions on the land. During the first week of the exhibition, visitors will have the opportunity to speak with Ropson as he works in the gallery space.
