A major contemporary Canadian artist, Liz Magor is interested in the social and emotional lives of ordinary, even domestic objects. It is by working from hyperrealist casts of daily objects and articles of clothing, stitching back up and conserving objects chosen for their manifest obsolescence, that Magor tips us off.
This awakening of an anonymous material world, we can read a certain history of our modern culture, from property to the need to protect and accumulate, as well as the ambiguity and inconstancy of the desire that connects us with objects.
Exhibition conceived in collaboration with the Contemporary Art Gallery, Vancouver, Canada and Peep-Hole, Milan, Italy.
