EVENT DETAILS

LUCKY 13

LUCKY 13
The Gladstone Hotel, 2nd Floor Galleries

Thursday September 20, 2012 to Wednesday September 26, 2012

Opening Reception: Thursday Sept 20,7 – 10 pm

An exhibition of new work by OCAD University's Interdisciplinary Master’s of Art, Media & Design class of 2013

About the artists:

ALEXIS BOYLE
 creates collapsible architectures that temporarily alter public spaces and heighten sensory awareness within natural and urban environments.

GUSTAVO CERQUERA BENJUMEA transforms one of the Gladstone’s hotel rooms into an Amazonian landscape laced with mythological creatures and an air of violence.

ANDY FABO links memory, mortality, Dada and Pop art in Missives from Hypnos, a declarative poster series that makes reference to Derrida and Bataille.

CALLIOPE GAZETAS’ coyotes lurk around the hotel, acknowledging human and non-human coexistence in our built environments.

ALEX HAAGAARD blurs the line between the functional and the beautiful in a series of jewelry pieces formalizing the aesthetics of medical imagery.

MELANIE JANISSE explores the expression of inward journeys through made objects and storytelling.

TAHIREH LAL presents work created at a residency on Toronto Island that is reminiscent of the South Indian practice of making kolams to protect homes. Using sand from the beaches of Toronto Island, Lal invokes protection for the abundance that is the island’s life and community.

RAENEL LEPPKY is a designer and maker whose ceramic forms investigate the formal principles of proportion and scale while revealing the experience of the hand's grasp. The uncomplicated form of her prototype chair is a study in aesthetics and economy.

ARA MACLEAN's black and white film installation, Always Moving Slowly Moving, features a still dancer in a moving landscape, to be viewed from a cedar platform.


DIANA MEREDITH’S sculptural installations contemplate the realities of middle age, and communicate the physical and psychic states of fragmentation and loss that occur with the passage of time.

HEATHER NICOL’S audio installation Talk Back examines the spectator – art object relationship. The work playfully interrogates the pleasures, anxieties and pretentions that encounters with artworks at galleries can invoke.

NICK SWEETMAN’S video captures the process of painting using time-lapse photography. Juxtaposed with its result—the flat dried painting hung nearby—the video explores how movement allows the eye to discern surface topography.

ANDREW ZEALLEY presents Say ”Ah,” an examination of the preliminary clinical gesture and the links to body systems, semantics, and sex. Say “Ah” is an installation and an introduction to Zealley’s MFA investigation into sound, healing, neo-shamanisms, and queer things: Disco Hospital.


Select artists will be present on the afternoon of Saturday, September 22 from 2 to 5 pm to answer questions and receive small gifts. Preview information is available upon request.
