February to April 2005John Dummet, Lookout, Articule Gallery, Montreal, October 03

Working under the name ‘otiose’ John Dummett has been making site-specific and gallery-based installations and interventions since 1997. Otiose Projects are concerned with how the actualities and memories of place are marked and shaped by different and contradictory economic, polotical and social interests. Recent works have focused on a live investigation of civic space, which adoptes the forms and tools of public consultation exercises and street protests. Using these devices John creates environments to facilitate a dialogue questioning the relationships between memory, behaviour and site. A key concern throughout his work is to question and re-evaluate the relationship between the audience and the artist/artwork, and to create situations or processes in which the public actively participates as author, context and witness.

Process Room

John Dummett’s work was shown in the Process Room from March 2 until March 13 2005.
