Charmaine Wheatley. Chesterfield 2000 (detail of bookwork).
Curator Cliff Eyland for Gallery 1.1.1, Winnipeg
Raised in Halifax, Charmaine Wheatley took up residence in New York City after graduating from the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design. She is known for teasingly erotic subject matter.
The exhibition includes documentation of her Agricola Street storefront performance in 1997 and another Halifax-era piece, the bookwork Cambridge Suites. Also on view are traces of the artistís later performances in strip clubs and the chocolate Moonpies cast from her buttocks.
