Tragedy Plus Time
Dunlop Art Gallery, Regina, SK
Curated by Blair Fornwald, Jennifer Matotek, and Wendy Peart
“Comedy is tragedy plus time.”
This statement articulates the effects of time and critical distance, and the transformative and political dimensions of comedy. The artists in Tragedy Plus Time use humour to address a spectrum of difficult content, from the trauma inflicted by general societal ills, to tragedies which are more personal and specific.
The work Lost Object has been installed as part of this group exhibition.
