Toronto artist Dave Dyment has undertaken a new project that began with his exploration of The Power Plant’s archives. Expanding on his practice of research-based conceptualism, his investigation will result in a work that will be presented within Dissenting Histories: 25 Years of The Power Plant during our Summer 2012 season. Working with audio, video, photography, and the production of artists' books, multiples and editions, Dyment’s witty practice mines popular culture, vernacular photography and music. His past projects include a century-aged edition of Glenfiddich malt whisky; a duet with Sonic Youth’s Lee Ranaldo; and the photograph One Billion Years (Past & Future), which arranges dozens of books according to the time frames referenced in their titles. Dyment has exhibited across Canada and internationally, and his work is represented by MKG127, Toronto.
