3929 Carp Road
Carp, Ontario, Canada K0A 1L0

Opening sponsored by our Distinguished Benefactor, Dr. Ódor Bálint, Ambassador of Hungary, in Ottawa

“As Cold War fears gripped the Canadian public in the 1960s, the government secretly constructed a massive underground bunker in the event of nuclear warfare. A relic of the Cold War, this 4-story underground bunker was the epicentre of Canada’s defense against nuclear attack.” (diefenbunker.ca)
Through its exhibitions program and exhibition spaces, this National Historic Site supports local and international artists. It is visited on a regular basis by large numbers of individuals, groups, and schools.”

THEME OF CHAC EXHIBITION

This hauntingly unusual space is visually intriguing in its every detail. Visiting the venue one cannot forget that many of us, as a result of our histories hold memories, images, and narratives of war, revolution, and immigration. As the facility links us to the history of the cold war, of being refugees or descendants thereof, we asked artists to present projects and or works that either reflects this history or are in keeping with and reactions to the nature of the facility as a historical time capsule and how it may relate to our current times.

Andrea Pottyondy – Lifelines

Andrea Pottyondy - Lifelines

“Lifelines” is a direct result of an unexpected medical emergency that I experienced in early spring of this year.  I had to learn the art of surrender and allow my fate to unfold.  I was asked if I had a “do not resuscitate order” and I reacted with comic relief  “only if I am a vegetable”.  Laughter is the best medicine right?  Or is making art?
Creating art became part of my convalescence. The “Lifelines” series that was formulating in my mind’s eye expressed itself in aqueous abstracted layers and forms. This series was intentional and developed over time and I can only hope it holds your attention and excites your curiosity.

Art is Beauty. Art is a Healer. Art Makes Us Human.
