CHEAP ! presents a new body of work by Kelowna-based artist Patrick Lundeen who combines sculpture, textiles, and sound to create a fully immersive experience that captures the artist’s absurdist aesthetic. Lundeen’s work, all made of recycled and found objects, explores how discarded materials can be manipulated, repurposed, and reimagined. Triggered by audience interaction, the objects on view move and make noise, creating a soundscape for the exhibition. CHEAP ! will be accompanied by a limited addition vinyl record featuring Lundeen’s original music, available for purchase while supplies last.
