Art Exhibition: Stephen Bulger Gallery - Termina - by Elizabeth Siegfried



    Exhibition Dates: August 11th - September 19th

    Closing reception for the artist: Thursday, September 17th, 5-8pm

    TORONTO, Aug. 7 /CNW/ - "Termina" is an exhibition of work by Elizabeth
Siegfried that tells the story of her diminishing family tree and contemplates
the ending of one branch of Siegfried's family lineage: her own. Not having
children, whether or not a conscious decision, can bring with it sadness,
nostalgia, guilt or regret. Research shows that families in many places in the
world are getting smaller. This trend carries profound socio-economic
implications underscored by a powerful emotional impact. The images in
"Termina" are drawn from family films shot between 1922 and 1945. Affected by
images of her great-grandmother, grandmother and mother, Siegfried uses the
old footage to capture the personality, character and spirit of each woman.
The project concludes with photographs of the artist, which acknowledge her
choices and engage her past generations, while also contemplating the end of
her family line.
