Ordinary Obsessions

Jun 24—Sep 10, 2017

In Ordinary Obsessions, two playful minimalists encounter the banality and mystery of material culture, lived experience, and time. Motivated by the questions of ordinary life and 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.
