ShopWAG Presents Kevin Friedrich: Pop/Folk Neo Frankenstein
Thursday, September 21, 2017 to Sunday, October 15, 2017
Opening reception: Sept 21, 6–9pm at Gallery Shop
Winnipeg-based visual artist Kevin Friedrich’s Pop/Folk Neo Frankenstein series of sculptures and paintings juxtapose the subtle contradictions and create allegories of how communications technologies are driving us away from each other. Friedrich has taken found objects apart and cobbled them back together in unexpected ways in order to create a chimera of figure, animal, and robot elements.
