The installation “Ottawa’s Kitimat” is a long, rhythmic geometric snake like structure representing the proposed conversion of a natural gas pipeline that BYPASSes Ottawa’s centre; it twists and turns in the gallery space encroaching above the viewer
Through representation and abstraction, Lori Victor deconstructs and interprets a variety of subjects that have become personally important. Her goal is to evoke some of the same feelings in the viewer that initially inspired her to create the work. To achieve her objective, she employs a variety of methods including installation and acrylic painting.
Lori’s installations are created from accessible materials, which she builds and manipulates by hand. These works reflect her personal thoughts and experience on contemporary social issues including: ageism, climate change, sexism and discrimination. Her installations are accessible, yet challenging, promoting viewer response by provoking reflection, generating dialogue and inspiring action.
