Poutine it out there
Check out Kevin Ei-ichi deForest, whose work is currently at the Henry in The Record. Here.
Heavy-handed though that may be,I quite like this one:
He says: My work is involved with the representation of hybrid identity, namely with a focus on my cultural heritage as a suburban Canadian mid-westerner of Japanese and European descent. It is still relevant to address the context of race and difference in contemporary art. The challenge of working in a post-identity politics age is to reformulate and question those very categories through my artwork and practice.
