West Gallery:


Mercer Union A Centre for Contemporary Visual Art is pleased to present the first solo exhibition of an installation by Toronto artist Kartz Ucci.

Kartz Ucci’s installations deal with the experience of being Italian-Canadian, of maintaining two identities, two cultures and two languages in a predominantly anglo environment. Ucci explores practices that subvert feminine power and position women in a commodity exchange, such as the dowry system. Drawing upon a rich cultural tradition which embraces dreams, premonitions and superstitions she creates haunting work that transcends generation or culture.

Kartz Ucci is a recent graduate of York University. Her set designs have appeared ln productions by the York University Theater Department and Company Of Sirens.
