Kelly Mark, 108 Lezton Avenue, 10:13, DV, 2014

“Strung between the twin poles of pathos and irony, 108 Leyton Ave is Kelly Mark’s most personally revealing work to date. It is built from common expressions relating to “everything” and “nothing” and was developed over a period while Mark was living in the social isolation of a quasi-suburban limbo on Toronto’s eastern edge. “Everything” and “Nothing” are constructed as opposite but asymmetrical roles that she performs for a split-screen projection, plumbing the contradictions of her own personality to reveal the bravura and insecurity of having no one to talk to but yourself.” – Christina Ritchie (Text excerpted from Nothing is Larger Than Everything press release Diaz Contemporary, 2014)
