“corrupted meditations on connectivity and spontaneous networks through structural clues and the technology of signage. I borrow syntax from forms of marketing as a critique by mimicry, highlighting the lengths and absurdities by which our current western culture has developed. ”
Sandy Callander is an artist and writer based in Toronto. His work is concerned with slippage of meaning in communicative systems and visual interpretation through the application of specific phrases which point to areas of concern within the struggle for stable and livable employment in the service-oriented economy. Central to this are reflections on the advertising and public relations industries, the development of the “culture industry”, and physical and cognitive architectures of the built world. He has had exhibitions at Abbozzo Gallery, Beaver Hall Gallery, OCAD University, and Ryerson University. Callander was published in the 2019 and 2020 issues of the OCADU Journal of Visual and Critical Studies, was designer and co-editor of 2020 Sculpture/Installation thesis catalogue A Tending to Things, and has a forthcoming pair of books to be self-published in 2021. He holds a BFA in Sculpture/Installation from OCADU.
