Jennifer Marman Daniel Borins Go With the Flow

MKG127 is very pleased to present Go with the Flow by
Jennifer Marman & Daniel Borins in MKG127's lightbox.


September 10, 2016 - September 2017


Deceptively simple in title, Go with the Flow is a subtle yet disruptive intervention.
Presented as abstract geometric signage, Jennifer Marman and Daniel Borin's project acts as a form of camouflage in an urban context. The public presence of MKG127 becomes obscured: it is as if the storefront signage has been disrupted by a visual jamming device. Two-dimensional graphic patterns layered on the sign's surface result in a shifting and blurring of focus. This visual distortion proposes a narrative interpretation: a dissonance can be observed in the changing face of Dundas West.

Jennifer Marman and Daniel Borins have been making large-format sculpture, mixed media, installation and electronic art since 2000.
Jennifer Marman is a graduate of the University of Western Ontario. Daniel Borins is a graduate of McGill University. Both Marman and Borins graduated from the Ontario College of Art and Design in 2001 where they first met and began collaborating together.
In Spring 2016, their solo exhibition "The Collaborationists" was on view at Art Gallery of Windsor. Produced by the art Gallery of Hamilton and the Robert McLaughlin Gallery, the exhibition also toured to the Southern Alberta Art Gallery and the Scottsdale Museum of Contemporary Art. At the same time, they mounted their second solo show with Cristin Tierney Gallery, New York. Marman and Borins' work is in public collections, including the National Gallery of Canada, the Art Gallery of Ontario and The Robert McLaughlin Gallery. Recent public projects include a pedestrian bridge in Toronto's Southcore Financial Centre, an animated video sculpture on Toronto's John Street, as well as a commission for the West Don Lands village.
Marman and Borins have lectured at galleries and institutions both nationally and internationally, including recent engagements at Concordia University, Montreal; the Tulane School of Architecture, New Orleans; and SOMA, Mexico City, Mexico.
