This collage exhibition will transport the viewer through time and space through official footage captured by a ’Space Probe’. One will be introduced to the keeper of the stars, to see what lies between atoms, to investigate who the solar tempests are and to visit official space ports, cosmic ships and planetoid camps.

Elyse Longair was born in Lethbridge, AB. She holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts from The University of Victoria (2011) with a major in Visual Arts and Art History. 2010 Elyse received the ‘Youth Excellent Scholarship’ from The Royal Bank of Canada to attend the Thematic Residency: ’10 Figures In A Mountain Reprise’ with Silke Otto Knapp and Jan Verwoert at The Banff Centre For The Arts. 2017 - 2018 she was awarded Elizabeth Buckley School’s ‘Artist In Residence.’ Her fascination with old science fiction movies, novels and comic books inspire her work. Elyse lives and works in Victoria, BC.

*Please Note* Gallery viewing by appointment is welcome and encouraged. We are run and kept open entirely by the effort of volunteer labor.

the fifty fifty arts collective is comprised of individuals living and working on unceded and occupied First Nations Territories, specifically the lands of the Songhees and Esquimalt Nations, as well as the W̱SÁNEĆ, Sc'ianew and T'Souke First Nations.

The programming space itself is situated on Songhees and Esquimalt Territory but engages with individuals and communities across Turtle Island.

As a collective we endeavour to deepen our own understandings of how we are implicated in the history and in the present ongoing project of settler colonialism. As members of the fifty fifty arts collective we continually responsibilize ourselves to the complex kind of space that is the fifty fifty which hosts and facilitates the dissemination of the ideas and work of others.
