“The other in the everyday” as a concept posses a variety meanings. Each artist has taken a personal approach to this concept; Vanessa Rieger and Kevin Hainey approach the theme of theft and collection by providing a glimpse into a process that builds up in front of the viewer but begins at a Laundromat down the road, Rebecca Fin Simonetti poetically touches on the subject of insanity and addiction by building a “pill tent” that contains an “other self” ready to be let out at any moment, while Zoe Alexis-Abrams’ performance builds up a precarious structure that is erected only to be destroyed moments after its completion.
The notion of the ‘other’ can be seen as a difference and a presence, retaining a discourse of collective action, voyeurism, consciousness, cause and effect and even things like fate, luck, and fortune; interference or the requesting of interference with another entity or being. Peripheral Redundance: The Other In The Everyday will feature over 22 local artists at the DeLeon White Gallery, bringing visibility to an ever-changing subject in an ever-growing world.
The show is open to Toronto and vicinity residents on September 26th, 2009 beginning at 12pm (noon) and ending at 11PM.
The event will unfold idiosyncratically in the course of these 11 hours: The first 7 hours will contain more durational and object based works, while the following 4 hours will present more action and body based works.
