Dave Dyment Hourglass Sand in the Vaseline

MKG127 is very pleased to present Hourglass Sand in the Vaseline,
an exhibition of new work by Toronto artist Dave Dyment.

November 24 - December 22, 2012

Hourglass Sand in the Vaseline, Dyment's third solo exhibition at MKG127, continues the artist's exploration of the language and idioms inherent to cinema and popular culture. Formal tropes such as the diptych, the duet, the recto-verso and the alternate-take are employed to investigate black-outs, gaps, and other temporal disruptions and ellipses.

Dave Dyment's research-based conceptualism often involves obsessive collecting and cataloguing of cultural data. His most recent projects, for example, include The Day After, Tomorrow, which consists of every disaster film ever made, reduced to the moments of impact, and presented geographically across twenty monitors and Is It What It Is and Other Questions, commissioned this summer by the Power Plant, an LED sign with one thousand questions culled from the gallery archives. Dyment has exhibited across Canada and internationally.


MKG127 is located in Toronto at 1445 Dundas St. West between Dufferin St. and Gladstone Ave. Hours are Wednesday to Saturday from 12 to 6 PM or by appointment. For more information call 647-435-7682.
