Kelly Lycan

WHITE HOT

September 12 – October 10, 2009

Opening Reception: September 12, 2009, 2:00 – 5:00 pm

WHITE HOT flea market:
Saturdays from 12:00 – 5:00 pm

Vancouver-based Kelly Lycan’s practice looks at the way objects are valued and devalued dependent upon their place and display. As a monochromatic installation and photo-based exhibition of recycled objects and re-visioned collections, WHITE HOT looks at this idea of value and the relationships between market culture and visual culture. Throughout the course of the exhibition, using a range of display and representational strategies, Lycan will be restyling the installation of objects borrowed, scavenged and created by both Lycan and other invited artists. In residence for the duration of the project, as a performative gesture, Lycan manages the WHITE HOT flea market every Saturday at the gallery. Shopping is encouraged.
