Is it What It Is & Other Questions, 2012 An LED display housing one thousand questions
culled from the archives of Toronto�s Power Plant gallery (emails, questionnaires,
guest book scribblings, reviews, transcripts, etc).

Dave Dyment is a Toronto-based artist whose practice includes audio, video, photography, performance, writing and curating, and the production of artists' books and multiples. His work mines pop culture for shared associations and alternate meanings, investigating the language and grammar of music, cinema, television and literature, in order to arrive at a kind a folk taxonomy of a shared popular vocabulary. Past projects include a 100-year old whisky, homemade LSD, a string quartet performing the Beatles' song A Hard Day's Night slowed to last twelve hours, and a video work condensing every known disaster film down to the moments of the destruction and arranging them geographically across twenty monitors.

Dyment's work has exhibited across the country, as well as New York City, Philadelphia, London, and Dublin and sits in many private and corporate collections, and in the libraries of the AGO and National Gallery of Canada. Examples of his work can be seen at www.davedyment.com or heard on the YYZ Anthology Aural Cultures or the Art Metropole diskNew Life After Fire, a collaboration with Lee Ranaldo of Sonic Youth. He is represented by MKG127.
