TORONTO: Division Gallery: Graham Gillmore

Opening reception Saturday October 29 from to

Whether through digital upload or in verbal communication, a small, if not significant, amount of information is lost when transferred. We could search in vain for what’s vanished, mourning the original, or, as Gillmore suggests, we can celebrate the incipience of its corrupted form. Gillmore works at the interstice of mishearing, pointing to the lyricism of these verbal contortions, while toiling with emotional murk that failed communication inevitably produces. In Foreign Relations, nouns are twisted and stretched, returned in their animated state as verbs. A co-op—mutualized enterprise—re-appears as co-opted, seemingly aware of its semantic hijacking.
