Things Fall Apart

A solo exhibition by Erika Dueck

Curated by Peter Tittenberger

First Friday Artist Talk with Erika Dueck: October 4th

As lovers and makers of craft, we are easily seduced by materiality, technical virtuosity, and outrageous expenditures of time. FAQs at exhibition openings are clear evidence: “What’s it made of? You did that by hand? Oh my gosh, how long did it take you?!” Using deceptively simple materials, lovingly and skillfully transformed with everyday tools over countless hours, Erika Dueck’s work had us at hello. And like all good craft, there’s so much more to be uncovered in, and under, its surface.

Dueck good-humouredly acknowledges that visitors might initially enter the gallery and wonder, “What’s all this mess?” Flimsy and inexpensive materials, exposed cardboard, tape, glue, wire, pencil markings, cords running everywhere. Sloppy craft? No. Accidental? Definitely not. These are the aesthetic markings of the urgent, the fluid, the ephemeral… the exquisite crumbs the artist has dropped so you can follow her creative process.
