Sandi Hartling: anything at all

sense first, reflect later, 2018, LED sign. Purchased, 2018 CAG 2018.10 a,b
Sandi Hartling's new installation, anything at all, features a group of LED "neon" signs in the Grafton St. Entrance of the Confederation Centre Art Gallery. The directness and immediacy of the bright and colourful signs contrasts with the ambiguity of their text-based messages, in what the artist describes as an ongoing "inquiry regarding sense perception and its role in knowledge acquisition." Sandi Hartling is a Prince Edward Island interdisciplinary artist whose work explores the philosophical and scientific perceptions of truth. This interest often translates into installation, performance, documentation, and text based work. Although it strives for simplicity in format, her work complicates understanding through the application of abstract communication, often resulting in comical and anticlimactic outcomes.

What are Relaxed Performances?


Sometimes referred to as sensory-friendly experiences, Relaxed Performances give the opportunity for those with various sensitivities towards sensory stimuli to experience and enjoy live theatre.

These performances will be designed in a way to be more comfortable for audience members who may experience anxiety or are not comfortable with some aspects of a traditional theatre setting. This can include people on the Autism Spectrum and their families; those with sensory and communicative disorders or learning disabilities; people with Tourette’s syndrome; someone who might need to move often due to chronic pain or to use the facilities; or even parents with toddlers.
