Drawings by Marcel Dzama : from the Bernardi Collection

Marcel Dzama
Art Gallery of Windsor
17.5 × 21 cm

Over the past few years Marcel Dzama’s drawings have been attracting considerable attention. His odd mutant figures, with their ambiguous relationship to other figures, objects and situations, are infused with a radiant innocence and an idiosyncratic sense of humour far removed from other strategies that have fueled artmaking over the past decade. In this most comprehensive publication on Dzama’s work to date, James Patten examines the seminal evolution of Dzama’s idiosyncratic approach to drawing between 1996 and 2001. Referring to Mikhail Bakhtin’s concept of grotesque humour and the carnivalesque, he demonstrates how each drawing is an amalgam of allusions to 20th century popular culture. With an introduction by Wayne Baerwaldt, director of the Power Plant. Originally from Winnipeg, Marcel Dzama has had numerous solo exhibitions, notably at the Los Angeles Invitational Biennial, Richard Heller Gallery of Santa Monica and Sies + Hoke of Dusseldorf. He has also exhibited widely as a member of the Royal Art Lodge, most recently at New York’s Drawing Room.
