MKG127 is pleased to present I'll Be Your Mirror,
an exhibition of new work by John Marriott.
Opening Saturday March 21, from 2 - 5 PM.
In I'll Be Your Mirror, John Marriott's first solo exhibition at MKG127, he presents recent sculptures, collages, paintings and installation work. These artworks take familiar iconography, objects and ideas and rework them, intervening in the appearances and meaning that we identify them with as we fit them purposefully into our world-views. In doing so these various projects disrupt and probe the role of recognition and interpretation in our processes of awareness and understanding.

His artworks have been featured in exhibitions and festivals nationally and internationally in venues such as The Power Plant Contemporary Art Gallery (Toronto), The Impakt Festival (Utrecht), 25HRS (Barcelona), The Rotterdam International Festival of Film and Video (Rotterdam), The 7a*lld International Festival of Performance Art (Toronto), The ZKM (Karlsruhe), The Toronto Sculpture Garden (Toronto), Dazibao (Montréal) and Optica (Montréal).
