“Cigarette packages will be the 'ugliest colour in the world' starting in November.” (CBCnews, CBC/Radio Canada, 1 May 2019)
This time last year, the standardization of packaging was made mandatory for the manufacturing, distribution, and compliance for all tobacco products in Canada. Cigarette packs presented in this installation were collected as this change unfolded over the span of a year.
“Once you remove the advertising, what you really remove is the emotional layer that comes with these products. I think if you strip that back, it’s no longer about the emotion. It’s just about the product.” (Bresge, Adina. Global News, 28 Oct. 2019)
How Can I Help You? is an installation that explores topics of emotional dependency on people, substances, and the rituals developed as a result of such.
Works will be on display at Good Sport Gallery until December 26th, 2020. Available to be viewed Saturdays 12 - 4pm or by appointment. Limited people in the space at once, masks required to enter.

Good Talks feat. Joanna Skiba
February 24, 2021 @ 6:30pm
Virtual Good Talks is a monthly series of artist talks where emerging artists with connections to London discuss their careers.
Joanna Skiba is a London-based artist. About her work, she would like to say: "I am an art fart. Yep, an art fart. I make art and eat chili, if you are wondering what that means. I draw pictures and eat broccoli on the side, if you are wondering what that means. I experiment and eat dairy. I'm not a fartist though, I wouldn't go as far as to say that my art fart is art. I'd say the work I make is."
Joanna's talk will be hosted live on Zoom on February 24 at 6:30pm.
