The best way to assume power is to take it, by creative imitation or by becoming the puppet master.  Pseu·do·ette is a collaborative exhibition between artists Zoë Courtis and Makala Chrisjohn, taking the concepts of power or authority to imaginative and biologically impossible lengths.  Using humor and non-traditional materials, from recycled cardboard products to children’s brass-craft fasteners, the artists challenge conventional “high art” practice.  Artifacts and their own personal experiences are used to create work that explores museological and natural preservation practices and how they withstand the test of time.

This exhibition is the first in the 2019 spring series of exhibitions by Fanshawe College third-year fine art students.
