FEBRUARY 1 TO MAY 19  Renowned British artist Mike Nelson invites you to step inside an uncanny world at The Power Plant. Though centred on his immersive Quiver of Arrows installation—a quartet of travel trailers filled with ideological signifiers—the solo show also boasts a new large-scale sculptural work, Gang of Seven, which presents a narrative crafted from the debris of contemporary culture while also recalling Nelson’s imaginary gang, the Amnesiacs, from a previous project. A second new piece, Eighty Circles Through Canada (the Last Possessions of an Orcadian Mountain Man) is a mishmash of scenes tracing recent road trips across Canada’s west coast, comprising a quiet reflection on human intrusion into the natural landscape.  —Sara Burnside Menuck
