Euan Macdonald: Two Places at Once

October 21, 2006 - January 14, 2007

AWE Gallery

The Art Gallery of Windsor is pleased to present Two Places at Once, the first major solo exhibition of Euan Macdonald’s work to have appeared in Canada in over five years. The exhibition features recent works, primarily drawings and videos by this internationally-renowned artist.

Euan Macdonald’s conceptual works all share profundity in brevity. Focusing on found or poignantly-staged situations, Macdonald’s work mines the depths that can appear in the most casual of moments. In his many videos, very little action takes place, precisely to heighten the emotional and pshychological content and allow the passage of time to become a significant subject. Opening up the psychological temporality within which we are caught in the everyday to an experientially vaster duration. Euan’s work loosens the hold of calendar and clock, and warps our sense of time toward intimations of eternity in ways that are grounded in scepticism rather than faith.

Born in 1965 in Edinburgh, Scotland, Macdonald moved to Canada at age 14. He studied painting at the Alberta College of Art (Calgary) and at the Ontario College of Art (Toronto). He has had solo exhibitions in Toronto, Vancouver, Tokyo, New York, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Brussels, Rome and Munich. He currently lives and works in Los Angeles.
