VISITING ARTISTS & SPEAKERS presents: Weppler Mahovsky
Rhonda Weppler and Trevor Mahovsky
Alexander Hall, Room 100 Monday, February 25, 6:00pm
Free admission - all are welcome
Rhonda Weppler (based in San Francisco) and Trevor Mahovsky (based in Toronto) have worked collaboratively since 2004. Their sculptures, essentially still life at life scale, are presented as models that are ambiguously bracketed off from the world they depict. Generated by laborious, drawn-out working processes, and often precariously balanced or otherwise ephemeral, their work focuses attention upon its coming into and out of existence. Their most recent work, All Night Convenience, was a 300 square-foot lantern mimicking a fully stocked corner store, created for the 2012 edition of Toronto’s Nuit Blanche. Exhibitions include: National Gallery of Canada, Vancouver Art Gallery, Art Gallery of Alberta, Contemporary Art Gallery (Vancouver), LABoral (Gijon), Dos de Mayo (Madrid), Power Plant, Musée d'art contemporain de Montréal, Tokyo Wonder Site, loop-raum (Berlin), Art Gallery of Nova Scotia, 516Arts (Albuquerque).
