Impel With Puffs: Kelly vs Kelly

Diaz Contemporary's new show Impel With Puffs presents a dialogue between sculptor Kelly Jazvac and photographer Kelly Wood.  I've been waiting for Jazvac's new show since 2010.  So when I heard about this show, I went there as soon as it's opened.  Using advertising materials, found imagery and short-lived consumer goods, Jazvac's sculptural installations, objects and collages in plastic at the exhibition have continued to draw inspirations from consumerism.  She considers Kelly Wood’s Continuous Garbage Project 1998-2003 to be an important influence on her own practice.  Wood's photographs at the exhibition consist of images of air pollution in Ontario.
