Derek Liddington. the body will always bend before it breaks, the tower will always break before it bends.
A solo exhibition of new work by Toronto artist Derek Liddington is a performance of two photographic stills taken from two 1928 Ballets Russes productions – Ode and Apollon Musagète – staged back-to-back across two sites: the Art Gallery of York University and the Southern Alberta Art Gallery (23 Jun – 10 Sep 2017).
Anchored by a co-commissioned video, each exhibition uses the "performance still" as a dramaturgical framework for the development of its score and mise-en-scèneOde at AGYU and Apollon Musagète at SAAG. These exhibitions are neither intended to bring to life the particular productions nor rehearse their subject matter or theme, however. Rather, Liddington animates the space in-between performance and image as a point of departure for his ongoing investigation into narrative (meaning) and abstraction (aesthetics).
The FREE Performance Bus departs OCADU (100 McCaul Street) on Wed 5 Apr at 6pm sharp and returns downtown at 9pm. Join Toronto artist and model Chris Heller for an out-of-the-classroom and onto-a-school-bus life drawing class while travelling en route to the exhibition opening.
