LVL3 in partnership with ACRE is proud to present the work of recent residents; Janina Anderson, Sera Boeno, Kaveri Raina, and Ellie Tomlinson. Together, the four artists pay homage to the state, feeling, and physical effects of being in-between. The group exhibition, In-Betweenness, showcases topics of hybrid identities, objects with multiple functions, and the relationship between content and form. Being “in between” is an awkward state that provides potential for multiple perspectives. While being stuck in the middle, In-Betweenness, allows our influences to fall onto either side of the spectrum.

Janina Anderson

Born in Asuncion Paraguay, Janina Anderson is an artist, writer, and educator living and working in Montréal. Anderson uses collage methodologies to explore how images function, stating her work is essentially about “looking really hard.”

Sera Boeno

Sera Boeno is a sculptor and installation artist from Istanbul, Turkey. Concrete, metal, wood, found objects make the foundations of her practice. Silenced topics –politics, sex, religion, trauma– are central to her work, which she addresses by collecting small, intimate bits of information, and re- contextualizing these in public, enduring narratives. Boeno graduated from Dartmouth College with degrees in Neuroscience and Studio Art, where she then taught. She has worked in various creative projects between Turkey, Lebanon, Japan and the United States. Boeno is currently an MFA candidate at Rinehart School of Sculpture at Maryland Institute College of Art with focuses in curatorial practice, critical studies and art education.
