About the Artist

About the Exhibition


Leisure is a conceptual collaborative art practice between Meredith Carruthers (1975) and Susannah Wesley (1976), based in Montréal. Working together under the name Leisure since 2004, they engage with cultural historical narratives through research, conversation, published texts, curatorial projects and art production. Leisure has produced exhibitions and special projects in Canada and abroad, and participated in residencies in St. John's (The Rooms, Newfoundland, 2016); Dawson City (KIAC, Yukon, 2010); Vienna (Kunstverein das weisse haus, Austria, 2008) and Banff (Banff Centre for the Arts, AB, 2007). Their recent research on gesture and spatial narrative has included Dualité/Dualité (Artexte, Montreal, 2015), Conversations With Magic Stones as part ofThe Let Down Reflex (EFA, New York, 2016) andPanning for Gold/Walking You Through It exhibited as part of In Search of Expo 67 (Musée d'art contemporain de Montréal, 2017). Leisure exhibits regularly at Erin Stump Projects (ESP), Toronto, and has work in the permanent collection of the Leonard & Bina Ellen Art Gallery, Montreal.

A Controlled Spill : contrôler les dégâts

It seems we cannot control it all. Even when we try, ideas and substances seem to spill out in all directions at once. The good news is that the more we let the edges blur the more interesting things seem to get.

We invite you to participate in a project of digging and spilling, resulting in weird and wonderful sculptures you can take home or leave on display in the gallery. Wear comfortable clothes that can get messy. Glitter, plant based dyes, Plaster of Paris, sand and trowels provided.

This activity is part of the Inventing Risk programming, which invites us to reconsider the way we make art and the way we think the image.
