JANUARY 7 TO FEBRUARY 25, 2017
SATURDAY, JANUARY 7, 2017
2 P.M. TO 5 P.M.
Sometimes watched though too often not, those beating hearts—those ticking clocks.
PATRICK MIKHAIL GALLERY in Montreal is pleased to present MONUMENT, an exhibition of new works by PMG artist MICHAEL VICKERS. The exhibition, the artist’s first solo presentation with the gallery, marks a continued investigation of the sculptural object, while incorporating elements and influences from industrial design, assemblage, and a renewed interest in poetry.
Waterjet-cut metal panels, engraved boulders, and new large-scale installations fill the gallery space, interjected by floral arrangements and tomographic imagery based on MEG and MRI scans created in collaboration with Dr. Karen Davis’ neurology lab at Toronto Western Hospital. In MONUMENT, we find not only a curiosity towards modes of presentation, materials, and differing relationships between objects, but also introspective reflections (both minute and macro-connections) and contemplations riddled through visual decisions and gestures.
