In 2010, curator Dr. Ihor Holubizky and artist Christos Dikeakos developed a project drawn from Dikeakos’s thirty-plus years of research and studio work circulating through Marcel Duchamp’s proposition of the “inframince” and the effects of psychoactive substances on creative and imaginative artistic production. The resulting exhibition, which travelled to three public galleries in Ontario and Prince Edward Island, included a full spectrum of mediums—sculpture, drawing, text-based work—all grounded by Dikeakos’s ongoing photographic practices.
Patisserie Duchamp revisits and orchestrates a reimagined version of the original exhibition, this time focusing on and thinking through the camera-based elements: documentary black-and-white photography, conceptual and conceptualized camerawork, and photo collage. This is the first time the work has been shown in Vancouver.
