Location

Oakville Galleries in Gairloch Gardens

The work of Toronto-based artist Derek Sullivan builds on historical legacies of both conceptualism and modernist art and design. For his solo exhibition at Oakville Galleries, Sullivan will stage Gairloch Gardens as a fictional country house akin to those described by authors such as E.M. Forster and Patricia Highsmith. Featuring installations of books, screens and furniture sculptures; wall drawing; and a selection of recent works from his ongoing Poster Drawings series—including new works referencing decorative mirrors—Sullivan reimagines Gairloch estate as the setting of oblique narratives of class conflict, romance, family melodrama, and murder.
