“For One Week I was Bruce Lee”
Karlie King, Phys. Ed.: “For One Week I was Bruce Lee”, 2012, maple desktop with image transfers, 19” x 25”.
Karlie King’s exhibition, An Education, was inspired by wooden desktops she collected from an old schoolhouse in her hometown of Mervin, Sask. Studying the marks that generations of students had etched into the desks, she discovered an alternative curriculum and responded with her own marks and images, creating poetic works that speak to memories of schooldays past. “These desktops are like riddles,” she says. “They are touchstones in a web of relations and thought.”
