In 2019, the Renaissance Society and the Carpenter Center for the Visual Arts at Harvard University co-organized BLOWOUT, exhibition of a newly commissioned body of work by the Canadian artist Liz Magor. For more than four decades, Liz Magor’s practice has quietly dramatized the relationships that develop among objects, and she describes this body of work as “a collection of tiny and intense narratives.” As documented on the poster, the installation displayed altered stuffed toys, bits of paper, and rat skins—sculptural “agents”—suspended in transparent Mylar box forms. These works were presented alongside thirty pairs of secondhand shoes each displayed within its own box amidst elaborate embellishments.
