From The FieldsOver the past couple of months Kyle and I have been hard at work on an instillation for the upcoming Collection of Foreign Object's group exhibition called Generated Habitats, curated by Alexandra Rdest, Reiko Shimizu and Steve Newberry.
The show will take place in a vacant dwelling, Apartment #2-1022 Queen St West Toront, and will run from April 6 through to April 29th. Hours are Thursday to Saturday from 12.00pm-6.00pm.
For more information on the show and other artists involved please check out the website here.
And if you are free, come out to the opening reception on Friday April 7th, from 7.00pm-10.oopm.
Kyle and I cast close to 50 polyurethane scupltures from five silicone molds to produce our instillation which is titled From The Fields. It was a huge learning experience. The antlers were the hardest part, being the trickest to initially cast and mold.
The Field Figurines are placed all about the apartment. I took some pics to illustrate what I mean, but if you are in Toronto, you should definitely check out the show in person, there is a ton of great work, a beautiful bathtub intillation, an artificial lagoon and a room on it's side!
