Artist tour: L. Koltun - Death of the Monarch

April 28, 2019 2:00 pm. The digital photographs in this exhibition are multiple exposures of the freezing rainfall on April 16, 2018 and of dying local milkweed. They signal a catastrophic reduction of 90% in the Monarch butterfly population of Eastern North America. This intimate interrelationship between living plant and insect with the untimely freezing rain evokes a slow, shared death resonating with both grief and the memory of hope.. 110 Laurier Avenue WestOttawa, ON K1P 1J1..
