Installation Shot from Burnaby Art Gallery

Vancouver print and fibre artist Julie McIntyre incorporates a variety of domestic objects as the ground for a series of work that captures the complexities of one woman’s extraordinary life journey. During the 1960s and 70s McIntyre’s grandmother, Lucy Mood McLeod McIntyre (1906 -2005), traveled the world on cargo ships, snapping hundreds of photos along the way. McIntyre mined a rich inheritance of exquisite slides to create a non-linear record of her grandmother’s search for adventure outside of the confines of an ‘ordinary’ life.
