Prospect 2: Kelly Mark Works

Kelly Mark: Mended Stool
Kelly Mark: Mended Stool

Kelly Mark. Mended Stool 1995. Four-legged maple stool, pronged mending plates; 76.2 x 30.4 x 30.4 cm. MSVU Collection.
15 Jul 1995 – 3 Sep 1995

Works recreated the utilitarian space of the artistís live-in studio, suggesting references to work as task and the concept of "a work." Markís process, involving the presentation of altered readymade objects in series, unites a handymanís sensibility with obsessively disciplined minor acts of violence. The physical means used to evoke a complex subjectivity place her work in the post-minimalist tradition of Jackie Winsor and Eva Hesse ó influential sculptors of the 1960s and 1970s.

A young Halifax-based artist of promise, Mark was subsequently the subject of a feature in Canadian Art. Visit her website at ireallyshould.com.
