Objects + Ritual

May 12–June 3, 2018
United Contemporary
1444 Dupont St, Unit 22

Comprised of darkroom photograms and digitally produced images, this exhibition contemplates the purpose of objects; representing personal and universal histories. Vintage factory-made products, kept long past their built-in obsolescence dates, have extended their usefulness as family heirlooms and objets d’art. Whereas small appliances once offered freedom from the drudgery of domestic labour, today they are objects representing beauty and status, kitchen porn to be consumed as much by gaze as utility. Plus: the bicycle as muse.
