Micah Lexier’s (the artist who wrote the article in my last post) collection of objects on view for the month of January.
Micah Lexier: Twelve of One
January to December, 2010
First Installation: January 6, 2010
A year-long exhibition consisting of twelve consecutive vitrine displays, each lasting one month, each changed at the beginning of the month, starting January 2010. The displays consist of a selection of items including stationery, street finds, the backs of things, altered books, coins, packaging, printed cardboard, metal objects, forms, measuring devices, games, labels, and other printed materials. A boxed collection of twelve pamphlets has been produced in a signed and numbered edition of fifty, plus 10 artist’s proofs.
Micah Lexier is a Toronto based artist. He curates occasionally and collects often – generally items made of paper, including out-of-print conceptual art documents, printed cardboard boxes, and various items found on the street. He has a deep interest in measurement, numbers, and the kinds of casual marks we make in our day-to-day lives. Lexier has presented over 90 solo exhibitions, participated in over 150 group exhibitions and produced a dozen public commissions.
I really like the images above, and that he has simply just displayed found items to make something new and lovely.
