Megan Metté, Evelyne Leblanc-Roberge, and Megan Scheffer

Big Orbit Gallery

In Delayed, artists Megan Metté, Evelyne Leblanc-Roberge, and Megan Scheffer collaborate to explore a mental space that is often overlooked or forgotten, inviting audiences to rediscover the experience of waiting. Through still and moving images, sounds, drawings, and 3D objects, the works will play with the viewer’s perception of the physical space of the gallery, replicating the mental tricks that can come with the experience of waiting. The artists write this about the experience:

Are we suspended in a constant state of waiting? We wait for the doctor to see us, we wait for our phone calls to be returned, we wait to arrive at our destination, we wait for the right moment, we wait for answers. We wait with anticipation and apprehension. As we wait, time slows down. We become aware of ourselves and our surroundings. We crave stimulation. We start to create, question, imagine. Walls start to move inward as our minds project outward. Our thoughts wander. We wait some more.
