Dax Morrison: Day-by-Day

March 27, 2004 - May 23, 2004

AWE Gallery

Windsor-based artist Dax Morrison uses found materials as a starting point for his work. While working for an art framing company, he became fascinated with the labels on the back of artworks he was asked to reframe. These labels, which carried information about the works of art they described, were usually discarded in the reframing process. Morrison began to frame them as if they were original works of art.

By changing the context in which we can see these labels and other marginal items of visual culture, including educational films, pet photographs, and reproductions of famous paintings, Morrison challenges the convetional relationship that exists between the artwork and the viewer.
