Court Gee: Learning By Doing
Opening Reception: Friday, August 24th, 7-9pm. Exhibition Dates: August 24 - September 29, 2018. Location: Project Studios 184 Munro Street
Subverting function with wry humour, Court Gee uses readymade and craft-based materials to create comedic, and often absurd, installations. responding to the ‘landscape’ of the site, these materials are strategically positioned, with the tropes of formal presentation in mind, to resist their intended use. Because of this, these works often read as objects out of place.
Through these pairings Court Gee puts into question the viewers own relationship to the materials, situating the nonsensical narratives in a continuous loop of reality and artificial. The viewer is left to challenge and rediscover their relationships to everyday objects.
Court Gee is a recent graduate of OCAD University and has exhibited at XPACE Cultural Centre, Ignite Gallery, Mercedes-Benz Financial amongst others. ‘Learning by Doing’ is Gee’s first solo exhibition.
