We live among the sponges and chemical soups. 
We are made of membranes and fluids. 
Transparency and smoothness reassure us. 
What do toxic substances have in common with substances that expel toxins? 

We are the permeability of our bodies. 
We detox and re-tox and we’ve all had chicken pox. 
We are complicated by invisible forces: 
contamination, disease, illness, the promise of health, 
and the environmental realities of industrial capitalism. 

FOR THE LIVER, SKIN, KIDNEYS, COUNTER-TOPS, GLASS, METAL, BLOOD, AND HARDWOOD FLOORS explores the surfaces, behaviours, aesthetics, and promises of ‘purity’- especially as it moves through the body. 

Quinn Buckler is a Toronto based multi-disciplinary artist. She is currently completing a BFA in Sculpture/Installation at OCAD U. This exhibition presents the body of work she has been building for her final thesis. 

Thursday March 7 – Saturday March 16, 2019 Opening Thursday March 7, 6 – 8 pm
