Signalling The Absurd

These artists share a make-do spirit, finding scraps and throw-aways and making something big out of these small finds. Resourcefulness and inventiveness characterizes many a Yukoner, as does a satirical sense of humour. In each of these works, thereís a reaching out for something that canít be grasped, like Brad Pittís nail clippings  (Jickling), and a recognition of the absurdity of the pursuit, like the Calumet baking powder tin (VanKampen) or the scarf in the video The Visitor (Connors).
