Some of the XPACE crew went around the corner last week to check out TheÂ Museum of Contemporary Canadian Art's most recent exhibition, "Ineffable Plasticity." Here is the first in a short series of posts about some of the work in the show!
Jordan Laura James Maclachlan,Â Unexpected Subway Living (2010-2011)
Toronto-based artist Jordan Laura James Maclachlan creates a chaotic subway train filled with an array of figures, from a woman giving birth and an ape mating with a lemur, to a baby holding a gun and a man performing open-heart surgery. Her emotionally-charged piece is based on her take on everyday life: â€œcomplex, contradictory, exquisite, and oftentimes tragic.â€ The chaos and detail put into every inch of the 10ft+ work keeps us engaged and each new visit promises the discovery of a detail overlooked the first time.
