Warren 2


Date: 2012

Location: Tuck +15 Gallery, Calgary, Alta.

Warren is an ongoing project exploring issues of display, consumption and urban renewal through a series of installations in storefront galleries and vitrines. With this project I am interested in closing the space between art, the street, and display to investigate issues of public and private space. Each installation reflects the particular conditions of its display and the surrounding neighbourhood of the venue. Using the presentation model as a point of entry, the installation proposes a destabilizing sense of congestion and instability in contrast to the grammar of the polished and seamless architectural model.
