16 April 1992 - 16 May 1992
Opening Reception 16 April 1992 8pm
Mercer Union is pleased to present new sculptural works by Quebec artist John Francis.
With the exhibition New Sculpture, John Francis continues his investigation of the physical and psychological dimensions of human transformation and evolution. Combining interests in alchemy, shamanism and contemporary science, Francis constructs sculptures suggesting instruments to be employed towards the achievement of transformation. As such these works allude to a sense of passage while moving from physiological to psychological spaces.
New Sculpture has recently been exhibited at 49th Parallel, in New York and will be Francis’ first solo exhibition in Toronto.
