A Vancouver native of Japanese extraction, Renay Egami lives and works in Kelowna, B.C., where she teaches sculpture in the Fine Arts Department at the University of British Columbia. Since 1992, she has exhibited in Canada, the United States and Japan. In sculptural works (some made of frozen food) and audiovisual installations, she probes unsolved mysteries and explores death and its aftermath. She also speaks to the fleeting, transitory aspect of culture, identity and memory. Her presentation at ORANGE is an interactive sound installation involving frozen food items. Recalling the solid materiality of ice as well as realitys fluid instability, the freezer becomes a metaphorical place. Egami is also showing a new work on the production and presentation of food according to cultural practices.
