The Puzzle



Andrew Plum

” All I know is that through art I want to live my life;
to feel it, understand it and grasp it totally.
It’s the ever-relentless desire to live, feel, experience and be a part of something.”

Josh Thorpe
“The House”
Curated by Rose Bouthillier

Black and white photograph of building materials on empty lot

Built in 1822, Campbell House is the oldest remaining building from the original town of York. In 1972, after many years of industrial use, the house was uprooted from the intersection of Frederick St. and Adelaide St., and brought to its current address to be restored. Now maintained as a museum, the house sits back from one of the busiest intersections of Toronto’s downtown core, setting up a divergent chronology.

For The House, Thorpe will respond loosely to this recent turn in the building’s history, using photographs of the empty lot at Queen and University taken just prior to the house’s arrival. In addition to these, the artist will draw from the archive of his father, Ron Thorpe, a Vancouver-based photographer. While these images resemble modern photography and photoconceptual artworks, they also evoke an older tradition of painting and illustration that bumps up against the void, the open, and the abstract. This installation both turns away from the historical domestic space in which it takes place, and also turns toward it, drawing it into an array of perceptual, affective, and historical resonances.

Josh Thorpe has a Master’s in Visual Studies from University of Toronto. His work has been shown in Canada, the US, and Europe. Recent exhibitions include On Printed Matter (2011) with David Court at Printed Matter, New York, The Sobey Art Award: 2011 Ontario Long List at Oakville Galleries, Oakville, ON, Empire of Dreams(2010) at the Museum of Contemporary Canadian Art, Toronto, and The Object of the Attack (2009) at the David Roberts Art Foundation, London, UK. In 2009 Art Metropole published Thorpe’s first book, Dan Graham Pavilions: A Guide.

Rose Bouthillier is a curator and writer based in Toronto. Her recent exhibitions include To Be Real (2010) at the Prefix institute of Contemporary Art, Toronto, and Sublimation(2011) at Oakville Galleries, where she is Assistant Curator. Her writing has appeared in c magazine, frieze and esse arts + opinions.
