“the reason i’m painting this way is because i want to be a machine.” because i want to be a factory. an assembly line of readymades: appropriated garments and regurgitated texts. words from conversations, from jokes, from art, lectures, fiction, facebook, feminist theory, politics, film, self sabotage, scrutiny, music. and a different t-shirt. everyday. for three hundred and eighty two consecutive days. a daily dance; an exercise; a hyperbole; an open door. phenomena of transmutation.
come. loan a t-shirt (more than one hundred and sixty models currently available) and leave the shirt off your back (a stand in, a stunt double – a placeholder in the archive).
make a version, and a version, and aversion of yourself.
vancouver-based artists nelly césar, evan french, and somewhat-nomadically-based artist kate barbaria will intervene with or borrow from the project during the show’s two week duration.
possibly-cheeky, post-media, project-driven-artist sophia bartholomew is recently undergraduated from ubc’s visual arts program. she is a fiction in the way that every name is a fiction. she is an imposter in her own role.
the show runs from June 22- July 10.
gallery hours are thursdays and fridays 4-8
