2 November 2012 - 1 December 2012
Opening Reception 2 November 2012 7pm
This solo exhibition of works by Canadian artist Kerri Reid provides the first opportunity to consider several related series of works all revolving around the artist’s fascination with dust, debris, shadows and a inclination towards restitution, salvaging and repair. Materials in the exhibition vary from hand-painted ceramic sculptures, documentary drawings, and frame-by-frame erasures of video images, all intricate material processes that consider found natural and synthetic objects as markers of larger metaphysical questions.
Kerri Reid’s short-term residency in Toronto is made possible by the support of Partisan Studios, Toronto.
