PARKER BRANCH
No. 9: IF DESTROYED, WE SHOULD HAVE TO RECREATE FROM PHYSICAL NEED
September 2010

Exhibition curated by Kevin Rodgers featuring work by Kim Adams, Robin Collyer, Claire Greenshaw, Joel Herman, Jen Hutton and Nestor Kruger.

Narrow and unassuming is 99 1/2 Stanley Street. For this space I had a direct curatorial premise: to present simultaneously 1) the subtraction and division of matter and 2) the accumulation of meaning. I asked six artists to participate. To each of their works I brought the question of how interruption and division could compliment their project. “Do you want to feel me” (sans question mark) one work asks; another presents the opposite: “I will destroy ALL”. The store front window reflects the street and trees and passersby. Two bicycles are locked up nearby. A ribbon ceremony has taken place. Words have a life, so has merchandise, so has work, and in each sensibility meanings assemble. - Kevin Rodgers
