July 25 – August 22, 2014
Opening Reception: Friday July 25, 6-8pm
CANADA is pleased to announce Anthropocene, a group exhibition featuring Bram Bogart, Nicole Cherubini, Sarah Cromarty, Al Freeman, Alicia Gibson, Peter Harkawik, Chris Hood, Elisabeth Kley, Stuart Lorimer, Meghan Petras, Joyce Robins, Adrianne Rubenstein and Sally Saul.
The Anthropocene started 3000 years ago with the fires and the animals, the picking and the eating. As we turned the earth more habitable we left our impression on it, making it less real and more like where we came from. The art that we are interested in, I thought it was from the stone age. Drawing and mysticism, painting and color, pattern, decoration, sublimated messages, functionality redistributed as game. It turns out we were already living in a different era, one more like the stones, but where melting icecaps are laced with chlorine, mountains have rivulets of Barbie, and the continents light up like fireflies at night.
“Toast was a pointless invention from the Dark Ages. Toast was an implement of torture that caused all those subjected to it to regurgitate in verbal form the sins and crimes of their past lives. Toast was a ritual item devoured by fetishists in the belief that it would enhance their kinetic and sexual powers. Toast cannot be explained by any rational means.
Toast is me.
I am toast.”
― Margaret Atwood, Oryx and Crake
