ZEKE MOORES, Port-O-Potty
Zeke Moores uses metalsmithing techniques to render his sculptures, usurping of the traditional modes of mass production as well as the disposable materiality that we associate with these objects. In his work, mechanized assembly line production and objects made to be thrown out or forgotten become a craftsman’s labour of love. As the disposable dejected everyday object is taken from the street and placed into the gallery, our use and imposition of a hierarchy on objects becomes apparent. However, it also speaks of the amount of work no longer done by people or often done by a series of anonymous workers in a repetitive but carefully choreographed dance with machines. We approach very differently a practical or a mass-produced object and one that is crafted.
Moores earned a MFA from the University of Windsor Ontario, and a BFA from the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design. He has exhibited nationally and internationally at such institutions as: the Memphis Metal Museum (TN), The Rooms Provincial Art Gallery (St. John’s, NL), Grounds for Sculpture (NJ), Art Mûr (Montreal, QC), and the Contemporary Art Institute of Detroit (MI). Moores has taught at the University of Windsor and Brock University.
