loop Gallery is pleased to announce a new exhibition by guest artist, Yvonne Singer; just in time (or hanging by a thread).

April 26th – May 18th, 2014

Reception:  Saturday, April 26th, 2- 5PM

Just in time (or hanging by a thread) follows Singer’s ongoing exploration of the cultural nuances and sculptural qualities of everyday language. The installation features 24 hourglasses, (each marking one hour), a metronome, and a blue neon text reading: “so I watched him take his last breath and I was relieved. I needed the certainty that he was gone”. Placed alongside signifiers of the demarcation of time, this enigmatic passage about loss functions as both text and object.

Singer was born in Budapest, Hungary. She received a BA in English Literature at McGill and an MFA Honours from York University. She is an Associate Professor in the Department of Visual Arts and the former Graduate Program Director in visual arts at York University. Her community activities have included board membership on the Toronto Arts Council, C International Art magazine and the Koffler Centre for the Arts.
