This group exhibition is organized around ideas of contemporary ecosystems, where organic matter intersects with synthetic forms. Simultaneously referencing the archipelago of islands off the Canada/ U.S. border and the commercially manufactured salad dressing, the show explores notions of global circulation, natural versus manmade resources, formal recycling and aesthetic mutation. These issues are articulated across a diverse range of practices, with a particular focus on new materials as contemporary artists engage with the stuff of everyday to produce innovative art ‘consumables.’ Eschewing the dystopic, the artists present our current moment as a balance, albeit a fragile and poetic one, while asking us to re-consider the basic conditions for making art.
