With a selection of photographic or digitally-derived works by Scott Lyall, Arnaud Maggs, Liz Magor, and Althea Thauberger, Exposure makes tenuous connections to traditional figuration by pressing on the distinction of nude versus naked. Thauberger’s Ecce Homo and Maggs’s l’Origine du monde refer to seminal works of French painting but depict bodies—known and anonymous—in drastically different ways. Magor’s digital print 1902-1986 depicts a life memorialized and abstracted as a plaque on a much older tree. And Lyall’s nudes are wholly abstract images comprised of thousands of colours yet with no known referent; they are empty screens that are fully “loaded” yet remain completely bare.
On the second floor, the gallery will remount a version of their curated selection of work on paper following their presentation at Papier 12 including work by Ian Carr-Harris, Didier Courbot, Brian Groombridge, Patrick Howlett, Oliver Husain, Sandra Meigs, and Shirley Wiitasalo.
