MKG127 is very pleased to present
April 24 - May 22, 2010
Between the Click of the Light and the Start of the Dream,
an exhibition of new work by Dave Dyment
Continuing his interest in fan interventions into pop culture, Dyment uses found imagery, found materials and found methodologies to explore fictions-within-fictions, meta-narratives and collective confabulation. From readymades to painstakingly researched works, the exhibition includes books, records and DVDs (a two-hundred hour video), which examine in-between times and altered states.
Dave Dyment is a Toronto-based artist whose work encompasses audio, video, performance, and writing. His editions include Fifteen Minute Fame (2009), Sgt Pepper’s Extended Lonely Hearts Club Band (2008), A Drink To Us [When We’re Both Dead], (2009), New Life After Fire (2003), a collaboration with Lee Ranaldo of Sonic Youth and the forthcoming artist book Pop Quiz. His work has been exhibited in Calgary, Chicago, Dublin, Edmonton, Halifax, London, New York City, Philadelphia, Surrey, Toronto and Varga, Bulgaria. In 2008 he was an artist in residence at the Glenfiddich Distillery in Dufftown, Scotland. This is his second solo exhibition at MKG127.
