Terry Graff: Avian Cyborgs

Exhibition Run: Feb. 17 – Aug. 17, 2024

This national touring exhibition features  paintings, collages, assemblages and sculptures in a darkly phantasmagorical techno-fantasy of whimsy and horror. Artist Terry Graff has been making sculptural assemblages of ducks out of machine parts and scrap materials since the early 1970s. The “avian cyborg” has become a persistent motif in his work, exploring the fraught relationship between nature and technology and what it’s like to live in a time of crisis.

Avian Cyborgs was previously presented at the Cape Breton University Art Gallery and the Art Gallery of Sudbury, and will end its tour at the UNB Art Centre in fall 2024. An exhibition catalogue will be available to purchase from the Woodstock Art Gallery’s gift shop.
