MKG127 is pleased to present A Room Full of Stuff I Made (And Collected)
March 21 - April 18, 2009
an exhibition of new work by Toronto artist, K. Nicol.
K. Nicol’s work is marked by an obsession with collecting and turning everyday objects into artworks. His process is methodical, laborious and time consuming. He creates objects from start to finish by mundane repetition over countless hours. The diverse materials he uses range from small dead bugs collected from his studio windowsill to grid paper (with the grid lines scraped off and contained in an accompanying small glass bottle). Three of Nicol’s “typergrids” were previously included in the exhibition “Pattern Theory” at MKG127 in 2007.
K. Nicol studied at several institutions before giving up on any kind of diploma. He currently works in a studio in Toronto where he surrounds himself with old typewriters, clocks and broken things.
MKG127 is located in Toronto at 1445 Dundas St. West between Dufferin St. and Gladstone Ave.
Hours are Wednesday to Saturday from 12 to 6 PM or by appointment. For more information call 647-435-7682.
