DEAD DAD
Donna Akrey & Yvette Poorter

April 10 to May 19, 2017
DEAD DAD
Yvette Poorter and Donna Akrey are a collaborative duo that have been making/continue to make work together when they can since the 1990s. Their exhibition DEAD DAD uses snippets of other people’s memories, stories, and images as fuel to create a morphing landscape installation about dads—dead dads at that—but also memory and longing.

Variations on a theme
Adam Basanta

April 10 to May 19, 2017
Variations on a theme
Variations on a theme presents a collection of interrelated sound installations and mixed media sculptures. In each work, consumer sound reproduction technologies—microphones, speakers, amplifiers, headphones—are subject to a series of transformations. Through subtle redirections of both form and function, these objects become part of a larger thematic vocabulary which invites us to examine both the objects themselves and our relationship to them in unconventional ways.

Alexis Aubin-Laperrière

April 10 to May 19, 2017
Salon de Paris / saloon à party
Alexis Aubin-Laperrière’s installation Salon de Paris / saloon à party engages with text, drawing and sound. Arranged in a vertical triad, the artwork’s combination of voices, images and words cascade to no end.
