‘Archive of Touch: Touch of Archive’

Ruin — such a guttural, hard word. None of its various meanings are hopeful. Yet Canadian artist Joel Fullerton finds artistic expression in the act of ruination. A few of his multi-disciplinary pieces contain floral arrangements that will slowly decay during the run of his solo exhibition. “The artworks presented are based on concepts of the ruin,” he states. “And the absence from an initial intent, contemporary re-interpretations of ancient history, history of touch, memory and emptiness.” ThinkBox Contemporary is a new gallery, with a few exhibitions under its belt. It’s impressive that it is able to show an international artist so early in its existence, especially one that has support from the Ontario Arts Council. Open by appointment only.
