August 31st - September 24th, 2011
By developing her own form of naïve sculptural language, Mogelonsky constructs environments to transport the viewer into an imaginary space, outside and beyond the everyday. These humorous and sinister sculptural forms seek to investigate storytelling and repetition with the viewer becoming both participant and observer of an invented narrative: where the heroically crafted and time-consuming elements coexist.
Drawing conceptual influence from Utopian literature, theories, tall-tales, and Susan Stewart's 'On Longing', she will present sculptural 'island' forms, thereby building an imaginary 'little world' for the viewer to experience. These islands retain the so-called child-like qualities of construction, but reflect the intricate details of her practice and merge the 'made' with found kitsch objects.
The exhibition will also include neon signage, resin castings, postcards and trinkets from this imaginary place. Also in the space is a bronze cast of a typewriter that appears as if it has magically melted, which speaks to the changes in narrative perception and the relationship of storytelling to the overall narrative.
Mogelonsky plays with the vernacular of travel, while creating largely desolate, lonely and haunting images, thereby evoking a tension between the expected present and the uncertain future.
A text by emerging Toronto-based writer and curator Anastasia Hare will accompany the exhibition.
