The clever, intuitive, wildly charming kit-bashing practice of Toronto-based Georgia Dickie has made her something of a fan favourite over the span of her young career and her new show reminds you why. Dickie’s work bridges the grand gesture with the eccentric detail with seamless aplomb. A large structure cobbled together of found wood, metal and plaster spans the gallery with a helter-skelter, seductive roughness. But look closely and you’ll see the oddest things: a tiny dollhouse staircase, a mysterious photo of a backyard sculpture garden, the brass casing of a shotgun shell. Scaling both up and down, Dickie tunes the viewer in to the creative reuse of all kinds of things, and reminds you that things are not what they seem and that objects, like people, live many lives — plenty of which we’ll never know.
