Just a Moment
Opening Friday, July 26, 7pm
Testing the unreliability of memory through the context of prosaic actions, Borsos has created a series of painted aluminum and plastic sculptures, each work titled by the year of the source material and a visual referent. “Even in our dream state, for better or worse, our hands are not necessarily idle. It may be the act of disregarding the detritus of life, or sitting in a fog while making miniature assemblages of available wastepaper.” It is our preoccupation with the importance of living, he says, that allows these muddled drifting acts to recall and transcend our past.
Jeremy Borsos attended Emily Carr School of Art and the Art Students League in New York. His practice is multidisciplinary and includes writing, photography, installation, painting, and video. He has exhibited nationally and internationally. Together with his partner, Sus, the Borsos have developed a meta-historical use of salvaged architecture, constructing multiple dwellings and ancillary structures, most recently in the restoration of the Blue Cabin in North Vancouver.
