Liz Knox : Something In The Way says
NO FOUNDATION is pleased to present Liz Knox, Something in the Way.

Liz Knox uses conceptual strategies, examining systems of interpretation with an emphasis on irony. Her drawing series Synopses is of texts taken from her artist book of the same name. For the book and the drawings, each text originates from IMDB's user generated content advisory, providing an absurdist and succinct synopses of classic films. Each drawing is one film, as told through the content advisory. Something in the Way uses a similar strategy, creating subtitles for a rock song from fan writing about what the song is 'really about'; observing ways we construct both meaning and the meaningful.

Primarily working with text, much of Liz Knox's work exists as artist books, large wall-text installations, videos, sound, drawings and multiples. Knox studied Studio Art at the University of Guelph and received her Masters Degree in Visual Arts at Emily Carr University in 2013. Her work has been shown in exhibitions and film festivals across Canada and internationally including the Charles H Scott Gallery, Vancouver; Access Gallery, Vancouver; G Gallery, Toronto; Eyelevel Gallery, Halifax; Lawton Gallery, University of Wisconsin; Vtape, Toronto; and the Justina M. Barnicke Gallery, Toronto.

Invited guests are allowed to attend an opening reception with the artist on Thursday, September 10th from 6-9 pm.
