Judith Schwarz’s suite of three wall sculptures was fabricated by plasma-cutting hot-rolled steel. A response to the site visits and landscape of Hamilton, the sculptures compress imagined moments from the steel industry. Shipping and Receiving, Blast Furnace, and Smoke and Water comprise poetic shorthand that evokes the history and culture of steel town.
Corrosive (Through the footprint of another step)
The three floor pieces by Delio Delgado reference remnants of human passage. Works on paper, found objects, scrap metal and rust collected from steel processing, offer a diachronic narrative: piles of cut-offs form part of the installation, and so do their rusty imprints on paper. Delgado draws on transitions from past to present, from nature to abstraction, as a way of marking his own steps through steel town.

The formerly named Print Studio will be hosting a portion of Qualia, or the Feel of Steel – artists exploring the steadfast imprint of steel on Hamilton. Curated by Ingrid Mayrhofer and featuring the works of:
Wings and Things (Before Sunrise)
Shelley Niro’s recent photographic works question the meaning, space and time of power relationships. The icon of power lines, an electricity pylon, is placed in a pictorial corner, dwarfed by images of nature or symbols of significance to traditional Iroquoian knowledge. For Niro, “steel evokes a collision of thoughts about evolution of man and devolution of nature.”
Steel Town and (steel)scrap
Samina Mansuri’s projection/installation speaks to the constructed realities and myths of the steel industry in Hamilton. The works were created following the artist’s interaction with the industrial space, which she describes as being rife with “tactics of subterfuge and blurring of boundaries.” Mansuri’s footage was shot at Hamilton’s Samuel Steel, an impressive family operation with a history of 157 years of steel processing in the area.
Andrew McPhail’s armchair pincushion challenges our sensory modalities. An object that would normally invite an anticipation of repose bears a foreboding title. The artist states, “I know steel. i know its prick….” His reference to the everyday household object positions intimate personal experience at the centre of industrial relations.
