The Order of Things, 2014
Solo exhibition featuring Leif Low-Beer curated by Shani K Parsons and presented at TYPOLOGY Projects, Toronto
The Order of Things (exhibition view), 2014
This exhibition features new and recent work by Leif Low-Beer (Toronto/Brooklyn), an artist who engages in a playful reordering of ideas, images, and expectations through the use of constructed, multi-part, and/or recombined compositions of drawings, collages, assemblages, and sculptural tableaux. The Order of Things is Low-Beer’s first solo exhibition in Canada.
Evincing a keen interest in the mark of the hand, the relationships between objects in space, and the active engagement of the viewer, Low-Beer’s work is an exploration of psycho-spatial potential, graphing social tensions and internal enigmas that often exist as an underlying narrative layer. However, Low-Beer seeks to transcend fixed ideas or story lines in his work, preferring to create opportunities for meaning that can evolve and expand over time.
A full-colour exhibition catalogue featuring an original curatorial essay accompanies the show, as well as an affordable limited edition print produced in collaboration with the artist. A series of events including a catalogue launch, artist’s Q+A, and kid-friendly sculpture workshop were also produced in conjunction with the exhibition.
The print edition is sold out and the catalogue is currently out of stock. Contact me to inquire if interested in pre-ordering the second edition. To view/read it online, click here.
