EVEN IF YOU ESCAPE THE STONE YOU STILL MUST ESCAPE THE EYE, 2013
G Gallery, Toronto

My MFA thesis exhibition for the University of Guelph considered the enduring appeal of the mythic figure of Medusa, alongside the material potentials of The Medsusa Effect as an aesthetic catastrophe—not in the tragic sense, but as an ecstatic experience, a shift in states—from the Greek κατά (katá, “down, against”) + στρέφω (stréphō, “I turn”), whereby subjective experience becomes objectified, thingified, petrified, reified, stilled by an act of perception.
