Valerie Blass | Que du toc
2015 | Digital Photographic Print | 12" x 18" |
Blass’s work for the auction is from a series of photographs related to vice. She exhibited a piece from this series as part of Superimposition.
Blass is a Montreal-based artist whose captivating sculptural assemblages investigate form, figure, invisibility and transparency. Her vast body of work frequently engages the medium of sculpture and image production directly, and often uses familiar tropes or art historical references, which she then makes strange through re-representation. Blass often uses industrial or commonplace materials to explore tensions between materiality, the body, and context. She holds an MFA in visual and media Arts from Université du Québec à Montréal. Her solo exhibitions include To only ever say one thing forever the same thing, Catriona Jeffries, Vancouver; Parisian Laundry Projects @ The Hole NYC, New York; and Valérie Blass at Musée d'art contemporain de Montréal, Montréal; Art Gallery of Hamilton, Hamilton; Illingworth Kerr Gallery, Calgary; and Galeri Manâ, Istanbul, Turkey. Her work was also included in Mashup: the Birth of Modern Culture, Vancouver Art Gallery, Vancouver; Stranger!, Cleveland MOCA, Cleveland, Ohio; HA HA: BUSINESS!, Luis De Jesus, Los Angeles, Oh, Canada—Contemporary Art from North North America, Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art, North Adams, Massachusetts; and Traces of Life, Wentrup Gallery, Berlin, Germany. Blass is represented by Catriona Jeffries, Vancouver.Available for purchase at the Plug In ICA 2017 Gala & Art Auction on November 4, 2017.
