SEPTEMBER 14 – OCTOBER 6, 2012

Reception:
Friday September 14, 7pm

Artists Involved:
Vikki Dziuma

Originally from The Simpsons episode “Mom and Pop Art,” Dziuma’s pieces replicate the accidental sculptures created by cartoon character Homer Simpson. After Homer’s Odyssey is a series of planned recreations that maintain the humour inherent in Homer’s work. Dziuma emphasizes the reference while extending the context of the originals; transforming them from failed to successful attempts at art. Through their failure, Homer’s work parodies contemporary art and criticism, which Dziuma questions as an inherent aspect in contemporary art making.
