About

Garth Amundson and Pierre Gour's work explores the perceptions and politics surrounding the home and domestic sphere and identity politics. Using the technique of collage/montage and photo scanning to speak metaphorically about the social construction of identity, their installations invite the viewer to think about one’s own gender construction by psychologically projecting themselves into the images. In each project they seek to explore and dissect identity using their own experience as a point of departure. Their work has been exhibited in South Korea, Spain, Sweden, and throughout North America. They have completed several residency programs, both independently and collaboratively; Sculpture Space in NY, Cimelice Castle near Prague, Fundación Valparaíso in Spain, Lademoen in Norway, a Fulbright in Mexico, and a Rockefeller Foundation Bellagio Center Residency Award. While in New Mexico they will be participating in a thematic residency at the Santa Fe Art Institute, entitled Immigration / Emigration. Amundson and Gour met at the Banff Center of Fine Arts Residency in 1986 and have collaborated in various degrees for the last 30 years. Some bodies of their work are literal collaborations, conceived, developed, and actualized side-by-side. At other times, they serve one another in a support role: one-person sewing panels together, applying photographic emulsion or realizing the design and installation of the work. In either context, they are truly a collaborative team of artists who insist on continuing to produce challenging work that keeps them stimulated and provokes an audience response. Amundson holds an MFA from Syracuse University and Gour from the University of New Mexico. Amundson and Gour both teach in the Department of Art at Western Washington University in Bellingham, Washington.
