Lisa Klapstock was born in Kamloops, B.C. and works as a photo-based artist in Toronto. She has exhibited in Canada, the U.S.A. and Europe at commercial and non-profit galleries, as well as in alternative spaces and public galleries.

Her photo-based work is in private, corporate, and public collections in Canada and Europe, including the Art Gallery of Windsor and the Bibliotheque Nationale de France. In the summer of 2002, Klapstock was artist-in-residence at Stichting Duende in Rotterdam. She is a founding member of the all-woman artist collective, Fresh Air.

Klapstock’s images examine everyday spaces that are marginally inhabited, often glimpsed through a keyhole in a wooden fence or down an alley. Since 1998, she has focused on the laneways around her downtown Toronto neighbourhood. In liminal, the artist’s first solo exhibition in her hometown, many of the photographs depict abandoned sofas and armchairs. They explore relationships between figures and spaces, both public and private, using herself as the model.
Klapstock will give an artist’s talk on Sunday, Apr 9 at 1 pm. The catalogue accompanying the exhibition is a collaboration between the Kamloops Art Gallery, the Southern Alberta Art Gallery, and Tom Thomson Memorial Art Gallery.
