GINA D'ALOISIO

I'm sick of talking weather,

July 20 - 27th, 2021

Gina D’Aloisio (she/her) is a Toronto based sculptor. Her work focuses on hyperreal mould making and found object fabrication. 

It has been clear to scientists for many years now that climate change poses a serious existential threat to humankind. So why has there been no drastic measures taken to prevent this issue? I’m sick of talking weather, seeks to answer this question by investigating the strategies used by systems of power to mislead, and pacify the public, while questioning how this cause and effect leads to a cycle of disfunction which damages our environment. To explore these themes, Gina D’Aloisio uses everyday objects connected to both weather and climate, in conjunction with the body, replicated in silicone. By using irony to destabilize these forms, she destabilizes her audience, encouraging them to question their physical surroundings.
