Kyla Mallett: Marginalia

Kyla Mallett, Montreal Massacre4 (detail) 2004
8 Jun 2008 – 10 Aug 2008

Vancouver-based artist Kyla Mallett borrows from the systematized aesthetics of 1960s conceptual art and applies pseudo-sociological sampling and archiving to reveal networks of communication within various social milieus.

In keeping with Mallettís interest in alternative, often unsanctioned, forms of dialogue, the photographs in Marginalia depict annotations and graffiti found in selected books circulated by the Vancouver Public Library. The marked pages reflect the opinions of teens, feminists and art historians, as expressed in subject areas ranging from teen suicide to Miltonís Paradise Lost. In representing the marginalia in situ, alongside the official text, Mallettís photographs reveal reading as a practice that can be rife with contestation, even fury.
