Mercer Union Offsite: Hazel Meyer

Mercer Union, a centre for contemporary art, is delighted to partner with Sunday Drive Art Projects to present Muscle Panic, a new solo project by Hazel Meyer in Warkworth, Ontario.

Performance: Saturday, August 23rd, 9PM

Artist Talk: Sunday August 24th, 3PM

From the monumental to the modest, Hazel Meyers projects range from large installations to small woven tags meant for an audience of one. She explores seemingly disparate yet overlapping preoccupations intestines and athletics, feminism and the absurd, anxiety and textiles using scale, language, play, repetition, gentle confrontation and ecstatic immersion. She has collaborated with teens, badminton players, composers, her mother, and artists for projects that are devoted to a forever shifting ratio of endurance, transgression, and laughs, as ways of being in ones body and the world.

For this project, Meyer has turned the Cow Palacethe site of Warkworths Agricultural Fairinto an after-hours sports club for Muscle Panic, a rogue girls basketball team in need of a space in which to train, scheme, and otherwise spend time together, often at night. Mismatched banners and pennants hang by rafters nodding to the greater spectacle of gymnasium sports over a handcrafted, 14-foot basketball hoop, in a project that explores how we come together, how we sweat together, and how we build the tender, emotional spaces of sport.

Meyers project is part of Sunday Drive presents Warkworth, a three-week exhibition taking place in locations in and around Warkworth, Ontario presented by Sunday Drive Art Projects.
