We are pleased to announce that the exhibition ‘The Rise and The Fall’ by Canadian artist Liz Magor will open on Thursday, October 26, 2023 at Fondazione Giuliani.
Organised in collaboration with the Contemporary Art Gallery in Vancouver, this will be the last stage of a touring exhibition that will open on 4th March at Focal Point Gallery in Southend-on-Sea and on 13th July at Douglas Hyde Gallery in Dublin.
Magor is well known internationally for work that explores a subjective relationship to the material world. Working with ubiquitous, manufactured objects that often go unnoticed, she transforms them using inventive sculptural techniques that locate them on a spectrum between still life and the uncanny. Things such as blankets, containers, clothing and toys are found in relationships that generate a sense of care and meaning beyond their original use or need.
We acknowledge the support of this exhibition from the Canada Council for the Arts.
