Fused Space is pleased to present a new group show entitled “Openings.” Featuring works by Milano Chow, Chris Duncan, Owen Kydd and Lauren McKeon, this multi-media exhibition takes apertures as its thematic thread and explores the representation of absence, whether corporal or spatial.
Through each artist’s interpretation of portals such as windows, stairs, and other entryways, the viewer is able to be a critical part of the creation of meaning, literally being placed within the frame of the artwork. Our position as a viewer is actively called into question, as are questions of looking and being seen, voyeurism and objectification. These voids, as created by the portals, are also sites for potential action- rhetorical invitations to enter and exit simultaneously or to simply ponder what lies beyond.
