Kristiina Lahde – Opening Reception

January 22, 2015 @ 6:00 pm to 9:00 pm

Toronto artist Kristiina Lahde alters and re-formats ordinary objects and materials through a process of geometric re-organization in which measurement and pattern play a significant role. Envelopes, newspapers, telephone books and measuring tapes have an overlooked potential, an internal logic that Lahde manipulates to de-familiarize them, shifting, expanding, inverting, or transforming them. Recently, she has been systematically re-formatting measuring tools, cutting and reconfiguring measuring tapes and rulers using precise measurements, geometric shapes and patterns. For her solo show at the Koffler Gallery, Lahde expands her work to large scale and into the use of three-dimensional space. The new installation responds to the architecture of the site, extending from wall surfaces into the gallery space and investigating optical illusions, angles, parallel lines and crossing perspectives to redefine the environment.
