Lines in the Snow

Zachari Logan was a feature interview in Border Crossings’ Body Issue #158. Most recently, Logan has curated “Lines in the Snow: Contemporary Canadian Drawing”, which opened February 24th at New Art Projects in London. The show looks at drawings describing the intersection of ecology, indigeneity, sexuality, race, and technology. Zachari Logan expresses his connection to the project saying:

“As curator, and drawer myself, my interest in presenting a survey of fellow contemporary artists working in drawing, is in part, to highlight differences in method, cultural practice and exploration; while calling attention to similarities across vast territories. Canada as a state is the second largest on Earth. At the same time, it has a low population density. As Canadians, we live across broad and nearing distances, be they of the body, mind or culture. Time and space it can be said, are an artist’s gold. In emphasizing this abundance of space, both physical and psychological, “Lines In The Snow”, exist like those on paper or any surface, be they territorial, treaty or provincial borders; historical accounts, languages, cultural practices or personal histories.”
