Prospect 2: Kelly Mark Works

July 15, 1995 - September 3, 1995


Curator:
Year 1995 Theme Emerging Artists, Modernist Survivals, Nova Scotian Artists, Sculpture & Installation

Works recreated the utilitarian space of the artist’s live-in studio, suggesting references to work as task and the concept of “a work.” Mark’s process, involving the presentation of altered readymade objects in series, unites a handyman’s sensibility with obsessively disciplined minor acts of violence. The physical means used to evoke a complex subjectivity place her work in the post-minimalist tradition of Jackie Winsor and Eva Hesse — influential sculptors of the 1960s and 1970s.
