Baby Ruth by Jillian Daschuk
Stride +15 Window Epcor Centre for the Performing Arts
205 8 Avenue Southeast
Exhibition April & May 2013
Reception Thursday, May 16, 2013. 7pm - 8pm at the Epcor Centre.
Baby Ruth explores the welcomed quality of pathos through humorous mocking and suggestive thoughts, producing a thick feeling of desperate attention demanded by the pieces. Combining discarded, unwanted objects—inherently pathetic in their abandonment—forces the viewer to acknowledge the character within, garnering sympathy for the work’s mundane, objectified existence.
Jillian Daschuk holds a BFA in print media from the Alberta College of Art + Design. Her recent practice utilizes found objects and materials to explore and emphasize the mind’s unconscious ability to associate facial forms with inanimate objects.
