Abstract (English)

This exhibition presents a survey of Magor’s work from the past 13 years, beginning with the photographic series from the late 1980s. Arnold claims the photographs provide a useful framework from which to consider Magor’s œuvre, and Monk elucidates the relationship between photography and sculpture in the work. Additionally, the notion of a Canadian identity in Magor’s work is problematized, and a theory of the significance of the “shack” is proposed. List of works. Bio-bibliography 3 p., 37 bibl. ref.
