Micah Lexier
A Week At A Glance - Limited Edition Multiple
2011
$100

Produced in conjunction with A Week At A Glance, a one-year project by Micah Lexier made specifically for Rodman Hall Art Centre.
Each multiple includes: a unique 9 x 12 inch c-print of one of the fifty-two objects from A Week At A Glance, a bookwork, poster, and brochure, all packaged in a custom silkscreen-printed cardboard box. Edition of 52, signed and hand-numbered.

Beginning on the first Monday of 2011, four objects were displayed in the gallery's project space, which has been converted, per Lexier's specifications, into a custom-built vitrine. Each Monday, one object is removed and replaced by another object drawn from Lexier's personal collection of everyday items. The project concludes on the first Sunday of 2012 with a display that is one move away from the first, creating a complete loop that brings the project back to its beginning.

The bookwork is a size-as reproduction of all fifty-two one-week displays. The size of the book relates to the display surface in the vitrine, and each week is represented over three consecutive double-page spreads.

Milutin Gubash

$40.00

Serbian-born Canadian artist Milutin Gubash has developed a diverse practice incorporating performance with video, photo and digital installations and focused on the investigation of his own personal, social, and cultural identity. This first monograph examines the overlap of history, humour and authenticity found in his multifaceted practice. Often cast as the lead alongside his family and friends, Gubash employs narrative to blur the boundaries between real, lived lives and the people that we wish we were. Major projects featured include Which Way to the Bastille?, which recounts the story of his father’s life in, and escape from, communist Yugoslavia. These Paintings explores the life of the artist under Communism. The hilarious Born Rich, Getting Poorer is a sitcom-style video series (complete with laugh track) starring Gubash as himself, the Buster Keatonish everyman who embarks on a hapless search for home and for roots, after the recent death of his father. Published to accompany a multi-venue ten year survey of Gubash’s work, the publication includes original essays and photographic documentation. Born in Novi Sad, Serbia and living in Montréal, Milutin Gubash has exhibited throughout Canada, the United States, and Europe since 2000. In English and French.

Simone Jones
All That Is Solid

$20.00

Using photography, film, and CGI, the Toronto-based media artist explores how we see the world, and how our perception of reality can shift through various applications of what we record. In the central work discussed here four screens lean against the wall with images, both black and white and CGI, flowing one into the other. By conjoining images, the artist is attempting to create a hybrid space - asking the viewer to focus their attention on the nature of the images themselves. In a related work, Jones produces stereograms - images that allow us to see in three dimensions without the use of external visual aids. Published in collaboration with Rodman Hall Art Centre, Thames Art Gallery and The Reach Gallery Museum.

Catherine Heard
Theatrum Mundi

$26.00

Known for her sculptural work depicting things both monstrous and wondrous, Catherine Heard’s Theatrum Mundi (November 8, 2008 – January 3, 2010) recalled the European tradition of the wunderkammer. Transforming the rear bay window wells of Rodman Hall’s historic mansion into her own cabinet of curiosities, Heard displayed her personal collection of artworks, objects, and oddities, adding to and rearranging her collection throughout the exhibition.

Drawing on the aesthetic of Heard’s installation, the publication designed by Jenn Hunt and Tom Creighton of factor[e] design initiative includes an artist’s multiple and features essays by J. Keri Cronin and Rebecca Ward.

Graeme Patterson
Grudge Match

$15.00

Executed in Graeme Patterson’s signature style, Grudge Match imagines a freestyle wrestling match between the artist and his long-lost childhood friend, Yuki. Best friends at the age of 5, Patterson lost touch with Yuki once his friend returned to Japan four years later. Through sculptural installation and stop-motion video, puppets of Patterson and Yuki as teenagers engage in a fictional match in a high school gymnasium. A conflation of personal experience and emotional memory, the installation recreates and plays with Patterson’s memories of his first best friend, exploring boyhood rivalry and the bonds of friendship.

Micah Lexier
A Week At A Glance

$20.00

A Week At A Glance is a one-year project by Micah Lexier made specifically for Rodman Hall Art Centre. Beginning on the first Monday of 2011, four objects are displayed in the gallery’s project space, which has been converted, per Lexier’s specifications, into a custom-built vitrine. Each Monday, one object is removed and replaced by another object drawn from Lexier’s personal collection of everyday items. After fifty-two objects have cycled through the installation, three of the four objects presented during the first week are reintroduced, one per week, during the last three weeks of the installation. The project concludes on the first Sunday of 2012 with a display that is one move away from the first, creating a complete loop that brings the project back to its beginning.

This bookwork is a size-as reproduction of all fifty-two one-week displays. The size of the book relates to the display surface in the vitrine, and each week is represented by three consecutive double-page spreads. The book was designed as a stand-in for the exhibition, but it also stands alone.

David Spriggs
Archaeology of Space

$23.00

Using layered groups of transparent drawings suspended in museum-style cases, Spriggs creates what he calls Spatial Image Sculpture. These optical illusions of deep space, reminiscent of holograms, read as parallel spatial theatre. This deconstruction of form highlights the mechanics of vision at a time when cinema and digital imaging have come to offer alternative visual landscapes.

Susan Bozic
The Dating Portfolio

$20.00

Susan Bozic's work recalls the performance-based photography of Cindy Sherman and Jeff Wall while taking as its subject the social construction of romance. Bozic's character's dates a male mannequin and, through her photographs, we follow the couple from courtship and meeting the family to intimacy. Bozic reflects on consumer society's pursuit of happiness and the good life while referencing the internet dating phenomenon by staging dates with someone a little bit "different." Her project merges the optimism of movie-star promotional photographs with questions about both the tradition of courtship and its current state. Two essays elucidate her practice.
