Everyone Agrees That There Are Some Deep Mysteries - Notpaper

Everyone Agrees That There Are Some Deep Mysteries
Opening Reception on August 11, 7pm
August 11 - August 27, 2011
The Department
1389 Dundas Street West, Toronto, Ontario

This exhibition brings together new works from Toronto-based artists 
Kyla Chevrier, Laurie Kang, Jacob Whibley and Naomi Yasui.

Light offers a means of creating relationships between architectural surface, and the nature of perception. This is a distillation of space. Challenging existing formalities within architecture through a flirtatious act, inherently both aggressive and accommodating.

Laurie Kang's work is a constructed abstraction of reality that uses photography, sculpture, collage, video and installation. Engaging in various media is the result of reacting and responding to the history and medium of photography, in which her formal background is based.

Jacob Whibley's collages show geometric and organic forms in a suspended moment of transition. Drawing inspiration from modernist design and unfulfilled histories, Whibley assembles each collage through a process of successive movements and emphasizes the contrast between found and intentionally crafted elements.

As a ceramicist working in sculpture and installation, Naomi Yasui's current interests revolve around the psychology of domestic objects and the history of ceramic industry in Europe. She employs early industrial ceramic practices to create objects of ambiguous utilitarian function.

Opening: Thursday April 7th, 7pm at Artjail

New York NY 10002

This exhibition explores the use of collage as an artistic medium, dissecting its impulses and agendas while providing a wide cross-spectrum of its usage in contemporary art. It addresses the role of material culture in mediating our shared view of reality, the notion of a borrowed aesthetic, and how specific visual agendas express differing cultural attitudes. It includes a variety of mediums and aesthetic agendas, presenting not only traditional collage, but works which establish a collage mentality in the liminal forms of photography, video, digital manipulation, painting, sculpture, printmaking, children's books, commercial signage, portraiture, and others. In the end, it will posit collage as a cause, rather than a symptom, of both artistic style and generational meaning.
