Public Window: Sagan Editions – a lot, Laura McCoy
Public Studio is pleased to host three new exhibitions curated by Sagan Editions. see what happens is a series of three solo exhibitions curated by Sagan MacIsaac featuring artists Darby Milbrath, Naomi Yasui and Laura Mccoy in Public Window. Happenstance, play, and pleasure emerge in the multi-disciplinary works, which include ‘failed’ ceramic vessels by Yasui, a ‘boldly linear’ hand-painted installation by Milbrath and ‘poetically impulsive’ sculptural works by Mccoy. The artists will mount these new site-specific works to the Public Window space.
a lot, Laura McCoy
August 1 – September 2, 2016
Laura Mccoy (b. 1981) works in sculpture, performance, painting and words and looks at the well-trotted dirt at the bottom of the collective shoe of the feminine – in order to consider objects and methods that adhere to a structural precariousness or vulnerability and to reform the fabric of becoming. Her work spans a variety of media including drawing, sculpture, installation, and performance and has been included in various group shows, including showing work with Soi Fischer (Toronto), The Power Plant (Toronto), Mercer Union (Toronto), The Art Gallery of Ontario (Toronto) and as part of the monthly performance show, Doored, organized by Life of a Craphead. In 2015, she showed work at Western Front (Vancouver), Rodi Gallery (New York) and CK2 Space (Montreal.) She holds a BFA in Sculpture and Installation from OCADU and is the Art Director for the upcoming feature film Bugs, directed by Life of a Craphead, which is set to premier in December 2015 at the AGO in Toronto. Her work can be found online at lauramccoy.ca. She currently lives and works in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.
