This event has ended.

The International Studio & Curatorial Program presents Walter Scott: The Pathos of Mandy.

The exhibition presents a video and accompanying installation which comment on alienation, the myth versus reality of the artist figure, and self-representation. Dealing with the loss of legal ownership of a character he invented at the axis of his work, Mandy is portrayed as a solipsistic artist, who becomes increasingly desperate to piece together who he is—both personally and artistically—now that the central focus of his art practice is gone.

Walter Scott (born 1985) is currently an artist-in-residence at ISCP. Scott is an interdisciplinary artist working across comics, drawing, video, performance and sculpture. Recent exhibitions include Who Isn’t She? A Wendy Retrospective, Galerie UQO, Gatineau; Slipping on the Missing X, Macaulay Fine Art, Vancouver; and Betazoid in a Fog, Remai Modern, Saskatoon. Scott’s residency is supported by a Canada Council for the Arts grant supporting the arts and cultures of First Nations, Inuit, and Métis Peoples.
