“Mirror Bouquet” is a mixed-media drawing that collects the various mirrors designed for Barrow’s 2014 performance Le Voleur des Miroirs into a collaged bouquet.
Daniel Barrow was born in Winnipeg, and he lives and works in Montreal. He uses obsolete technologies to present written, pictorial, and cinematic narratives centring on the practices of drawing and collecting. Since 1993, he has created and adapted comic-book narratives to “manual” forms of animation by projecting, layering, and manipulating drawings on overhead projectors. Barrow has exhibited widely in Canada and abroad. He has performed at the Walker Art Center (Minneapolis), PS1 Contemporary Art Center (New York), the Museum of Contemporary Art (Los Angeles), the Musée d’art contemporain de Montréal, the Portland Institute for Contemporary Art, and the British Film Institute (London). His drawings are in the collections of the National Gallery of Canada and the Art Gallery of Nova Scotia. Barrow is the winner of the 2010 Sobey Art Award and the recipient of the 2013 Glenfiddich Artist in Residence Prize.
