Tracing Ambiguity

The Art Gallery of Mississauga presents my new solo exhibition Tracing Ambiguity in the XIT-RM space! The exhibition documents a diverse range of tactics used to explore the potential of semiotics found in “non-places” such as parking lots, or threshold areas where nothing seems to happen. The tactics help the viewer re-imagine alternative spaces within confined parameters, in order to escape prescribed patterns. The show’s Assistant Curator, Kendra Ainsworth writes:

Counting Cars at Richmond and Victoria Sts Parking Lot

It is particularly appropriate that this project of Susan Campbell’s be shown here at the Art Gallery of Mississauga, situated within a space that has become an emblem of the rapidly developing suburban centre. Campbell’s work makes references to the public spaces that we have all become familiar with – parking lots, sidewalks – and the small spaces such as condo units, that we graft for ourselves onto a much larger landscape. In her highly detailed, observational and yet humour-filled and creative practice, Campbell asks us to think differently about the spaces we occupy in our day to day lives and how we move through them.

April 30 – June 21, 2015 at the Art Gallery of Mississauga.
