American Leg is Josephine Meckseper’s first exhibition in Canada. For this site-specific work, Meckseper has created eight self-contained window treatments in the Contemporary Art Gallery’s street-front vitrines. Originally intended for retail, these window spaces will serve as ready-made structures for Meckseper’s ongoing investigation of consumer society and archaeology of the present.
Meckseper’s work unites modernism with the formal language of commercial display, combining mass-produced objects with images and artifacts of recent historical and political events.
