Fresh from New York’s International Studio & Curatorial Program, Walter Scott will be this year’s Stonecroft Artist-in-Residence. He will be presenting a solo exhibit at the Agnes Etherington Art Centre of Queen's University. He will also be showcasing a three-person live performance piece featuring voice, images, and sound.
In Scott’s new body of work, the central character is Mandy, an artist who has lost all legal ownership of his fictional character. A film follows Mandy through various vignettes of hubris and desperation as he attempts to piece together who he is, both personally and artistically, now that the central focus of his art practice is gone. The film and the accompanying installation are together a meditation on the slippery states between the fiction and reality of the “artist,” of aesthetic representation and of the self.
Gallery hours are Tuesday–Friday 10 am–4:30 pm, Thursday 10 am–9 pm, Saturday and Sunday, 1–5 pm.
