BAF, solo exhibition, Paraphernalia , January 11 -March 10, 2018
Lucien Durey is an artist, writer and singer based in Vancouver on the unceded territories of the Musqueam, Squamish and Tsleil-Waututh First Nations. Recent exhibitions include …a story in the middle…, School of Art Gallery, University of Manitoba (2021); The Pandemic is a Portal, SFU Galleries (2020); Crocodile Tears, Unit 17 (2020); Motion & Motive, Susan Hobbs Gallery (2019); TWO ROOMS, Monte Clark Gallery (2018); Phenomenal Hosts, Neutral Ground (2018); and Paraphernalia at Burrard Arts Foundation (2018). From 2017-2018, Durey wrote the year-long bimonthly review column, “Vancouver Report” in Canadian Art. He holds a BFA from Emily Carr University of Art + Design and an MFA from Simon Fraser University’s School for the Contemporary Arts. In 2018, Durey had a solo exhibition at BAF involving a series of chromogenic prints in addition to an installation of sentimental objects arranged in a composition mirroring a dimly lit living room.
Durey’s mixed media and performance-based practice engages with found objects, photographs, sounds, and place. Durey examines the affective dimension of objects as they undergo the shift from initial use to eventual obsolescence; through certain artistic interrogations such as building sculptures and mobiles consisting of found objects, Durey plays with the resonances and frequencies of objects otherwise deemed antiquated or out-of-context. Company is a unique work.
