September 28, 2013 - January 2, 2014 at Art Gallery of Grande Prairie
A survey show of Dean Drever’s work from 1998 – present
Curated by Robert Enright
By exploring power in various forms, most explicitly, power expressed through violence, Drever makes vulnerable the continuum from individual freedom to social justice. Drever’s sculptures unmask a mythology of dominance to show how the oppressor shares the same disempowered space with the oppressed. He offers the seduction of violence as a sensory experience; a secret space to act out fantasies of control and possession.
