ArtYard is pleased to present Ordinary Obsessions, an exhibition in which two playful minimalists encounter the banality and mystery of material culture, lived experience, and time.
Motivated by the questions of ordinary life an the mystery behind every action, Toronto-based artists Ken Nicol and Lois Andison consider everyday objects and verbal expressions that are hiding in plain sight. They explore issues of fragility, intimacy, introspection, and loss in a dialogue that is by turns unsettling, melancholic, comical and profound.
The exhibition runs from June 24 to September 10. 2017 at ArtYard, 62A Trenton Ave. Frenchtown, NJ.
The University of Waterloo acknowledges that much of our work takes place on the traditional territory of the Neutral, Anishinaabeg and Haudenosaunee peoples. Our main campus is situated on the Haldimand Tract, the land granted to the Six Nations that includes six miles on each side of the Grand River. Our active work toward reconciliation takes place across our campuses through research, learning, teaching, and community building, and is centralized within our Indigenous Initiatives Office.
