Collection of the Artist
Kelly Lycan is a photo-based installation artist based in Vancouver, Canada. Recent solo exhibitions Club 29, curated by Elham Puriya Mehr at Ag Galerie in Tehran, Iran (2018); and Little Glow at Susan Hobbs Gallery in Toronto (2015). Recent group exhibitions include Reading Art at Burnaby Art Gallery (2020); Song of the Open Road at the Contemporary Art Gallery in Vancouver (2019); Mimetic Workshop: Studio Still Lifes of Fiona Ackerman and Kelly Lycan at Surrey Art Gallery (2016); Kitchen Midden at Griffin Art Projects in North Vancouver (2016); Superimposition: Sculpture and Image at the Plug In: Institute of Contemporary Art in Winnipeg (2016); Ideas and Things at Kamloops Art Gallery (2015). Spanning 10 years, Lycan has worked alongside Jinhan Ko, Jennifer Parararo, and Khan Lee as Instant Coffee – an artist collective working on socially engaged work including architectural installation, publication, and public artwork. In 2020, Lycan was an artist-in-residence at Griffin Art Projects; later in 2021, Lycan will join the Ars Scientia a 6-month interdisciplinary research cluster hosted by the University of British Columbia working on academic art-science collaborations. Lycan holds an MFA from The University of California at Santa Barbara (1998) and a BFA from the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design University (1992). In 2016, Lycan held a residency at BAF amounting to a solo exhibition titled More Than Nothing where she presented an installation that delved into the aesthetics of museum interiors, architecture, and display models both past and present.
Kelly Lycan’s work investigates the way objects and images are placed and displayed in the world, and the cycle of value they go through. She employs photography and sculpture in order to engage them beyond medium specificity, into a fluid quality of relations that alter their characteristics; the real becomes replica, representation becomes abstract and image becomes object. Diane is a new work based on her recent residency with Griffin Art Projects, and it is unique.
