ALL THAT AND A BAG OF CHIPS
Installation by Trisha Lavoie
NAC’s Flea Market Gallery
46 Turner Crescent / St. Catharines

Opens Sunday 15 October 2017

In the work All That and a Bag of Chips fibre artist Trisha Lavoie creates a small cozy living room space in the Flea Market. A living room wherein the accessories have been replaced with soft sculptures of non-necessities or items of indulgence. The snacks we “reward” ourselves with, our “guilty pleasures”, the things we in no way need but have often developed a complicated relationship with as they have been imprinted as items of comfort. The crocheted items in this way also act as a double surrogate of comfort and security as they stand in for household items, the things we surround ourselves with as expressions of ourselves, how we establish our sense of “home”.
