Coming to Awkward Stage this Saturday is a new exhibition of my work titled, “Objects of Note”. The exhibition is a collection of my inventions, all of which are more (and less) than they appear to be!
Opening reception: Saturday, September 21, 6-9pm
Awkward Stage Lakeshore Mews (Simcoe + Mulcaster), Barrie
On display September 19 to October 12, 2013, Wednesday to Saturday 10am to 5pm
Max Lupo’s Objects of Note takes all of the things you never knew you wished you had, and puts them in one place. Are you your own worst enemy? Do you need a portable confidence booster? Or are you disturbingly lonely while sitting around the house? These, and many other essential human dilemmas can all be solved by an Object of Note!
The devices on view present themselves as an object waiting to be touched, and it is through the user’s interaction that the limit of the device’s functionality is revealed. Together the viewer and artist will find that what the objects purport to do is both a very real reality, and an obvious sham.
The picture in the header is a photograph of the Dial Me Story Phone, an invention making its premier at the exhibition. Are you coming? RSVP on Facebook! ALSO, all of these objects will be part an all night performance at this year’s Art Ce Soir (September 28, beginning at 7:00, at Awkward Stage and Lakeshore Mews in Barrie).
