Main BodyHourglass Sand in the Vaseline is Toronto-based artist Dave Dyment's third solo exhibition at MKG127, continues the artist's exploration of the language and idioms inherent to cinema and popular culture. Formal tropes such as the diptych, the duet, the recto-verso and the alternate-take are employed to investigate blackouts, gaps, and other temporal disruptions and ellipses. Dyment's research-based conceptualism often involves obsessive collecting and cataloguing of cultural data. His most recent projects, for example, include The Day After, Tomorrow, which consists of every disaster film ever made, reduced to the moments of impact, and presented geographically across 20 monitors and Is It What It Is and Other Questions, commissioned this summer by the Power Plant, an LED sign with one thousand questions culled from the gallery archives. Dyment has exhibited across Canada and internationally.
