Little Clusterfuck—quarters

« … je me fâche… beaucoup, mais c’est rarement un gros FUCK sonore, plutôt un petit fuck fuck fuck fuck tranquille… répété encore et encore. »

Aux côtés de sa série « Inappropriate » Grids, inspirée des « sept mots qu’on ne peut jamais dire à la télévision » de George Carlin, la série Clusterfuck de Ken Nicol est le fruit d’une calligraphie minutieuse et répétitive, qui produit des formations superbes et semblables à des grilles.

Ken Nicol’s practice is based in obsessive, often mundane acts of collecting, sculpting, mark-making—and mark-erasing—taking place over countless hours. Turning everyday objects into artworks, his pursuits have included writing out numbers, lines, and four-letter words thousands of times and counting every grain of salt in a packet.

Nicol is a Toronto-based interdisciplinary artist who studied at the Ontario College of Art, Toronto. His work has been shown in Miami, Chicago, New York, Winnipeg, and Toronto. Nicol exhibited at the McMaster Museum of Art in Hamilton in 2013 and was part of the exhibition One, and Two, and More than Two, at the Power Plant Contemporary Art Gallery, Toronto, in 2013.
