Kingsville artist Ed Janzen invites guests to the opening of his exhibit Good Dog, Bad Dog at Artcite gallery this Friday.

From Janzen himself:

The use of dogs as metaphor of the human condition has a long history in art. More specifically to this exhibition I was most interested in issues of pluralism vs. polarization, for the dog is a diverse being – at one time exemplifying all the best human traits, such as loyalty, dedication, unconditional love, obedience; at another, the most deplorable ones, such as viciousness, filth, disgust.

Cross-cultural opinions of dogs vary from “man’s best friend” to pariah. By extension, in human encounters, the “other” is often judged in terms of good or of evil; trusted or feared. Through video, installation and the hybridization of  familiar dog/ human cultural artifacts, these works occupy the space between the two poles.

Guests are invited to the exhibit’s opening reception on Friday June 4th, 2010, 7:30pm.

Artcite is located at 109 University W. in Windsor.
