They Felt So Much It Moved Me is comprised of 4 sculptures by Jaime Angelopoulos. While technology companies struggle to replicate haptic modalities into new products as a way to integrate, or at least evoke, bodily gestures within the digital landscape, Jaime Angelopoulos’ sculptural work creates embodiment through simple, static form. However abstract, her work is suggestive of human emotion and personality through the use of posture, scale, colour, and texture. Created from common materials, her work communicates sensory knowledge visually. Approachable in form and titled with emotive short narratives, each piece is immediately relatable and compels participation.
JAIME ANGELOPOULOS received her MFA from York University (2010), and BFA from NSCAD University (2005). She completed Post Baccalaureate studies at Meadows School of the Arts in Dallas, TX (2006-07), and an artist residency at the Banff Centre for the Arts (2006). Angelopoulos works primarily as a sculptor, but also creates large-scale drawings. Her sculptures are constructed primarily in fabric, plaster, and found objects. Angelopoulos has presented solo exhibitions at Parisian Laundry (Montreal, QC), Stride Gallery (Calgary, AB), Anna Leonowens Gallery (Halifax, NS), Meadows School of the Arts (Dallas, TX), and The Banff Center for the Arts (Banff, AL). Her works are included in the collections of The Ministry of Foreign Affairs, ALDO Group, York University, BMO, as well as private collections. Angelopoulos is represented by Parisian Laundry in Montreal. She lives and works in Toronto.
