The Gates of Dawn
March 28 – April 29, 2009
Please join us Saturday, March 28th from 7-9 p.m. as Art Palace presents The Gates of Dawn, a solo exhibition featuring new video, sculpture, performance, installation, drawing, painting, and wood burnings by Erick Michaud. Erick Michaud works in all mediums to construct narratives that explore ideas of death, youth, failure, home and nostalgia. Using situations and objects from his life as the basis for a personal mythology, Michaud seeks out meaning in the everyday. Personalizing mass-produced commodities and transforming the discarded into the desirable, Michaud examines a yearning for distinction that is at once personal and universal.
