Nick & Sheila Pye: Heavy Hearted

Tue Jan 22 2008

2:00 PM – 4:00 PM


This will be the first public performance by Toronto artists Nick & Sheila Pye, the collaborative duo whose videos and staged photographs draw on the history of performance art and vaudeville to explore tropes of auto-eroticism, narcissism and co-dependence. Responding to themes of gender politics and sexuality in the work of exhibiting artists Steven Shearer and Andrea Bowers, they present a fable-filled world where masculine and feminine collide. Their work has been exhibited and screened internationally and was recently acquired by the Hirshhorn Museum, Washington DC.
