Description: THE KISS (2007) Two-channel video/sculpture 15 minute loop, silent Two 13" CRT televisions & custom made plinth: 55" x 22" x 14"Provenance: purchased through The Power Plant Contemporary Art gallery by a private collector. "Multi-media artist Kelly Mark has long been interested in the obsession of television in ourculture and in technology’s gradual replacement of human interaction. Her light box entitled The Kiss was derived from an installation included in her Glow Video Series that Mark produced using reflected light as a primary material. Theinstallation consisted of two television screens positioned as if “kissing” and emanating a glowing, flesh-toned light between them. “The light source for this work was created by simply recording the cast light from a hard core pornmovie…the resulting glow is steady and rhythmic with quickening pulses of colour, mainly pinks, oranges and red hues.” - Rosemary Heather: "Kelly Mark Always Working" Canadian Art, Winter 2007 (excerpt)...

Her light box entitled The Kiss was derived from an installation included in her Glow Video Series that Mark produced using reflected light as a primary material. The installation consisted of two television screens positioned as if "kissing" and emanating a glowing, flesh-toned light between them. "The light source for this work was created by simply recording the cast light [from] a hard core porn movie...the resulting glow is steady and rhythmic [with] quickening pulses of colour, mainly pinks, oranges and red hues." Viewers of Mark's The Kiss are reminded of Constantin Brancusi's sculpture by the same name, which was simplified over many incarnations until it became a highly distilled abstraction of his initial representation. Mark's version takes the theme much further into the realm of the conceptual, as The Kiss becomes wholly symbolic of the intervening nature of technology in our daily lives. Mark's work is collected by the National Gallery of Canada (Ottawa); the Art Gallery of Ontario (Toronto); the Musée d'art contemporain de Montréal; the Art Gallery of Greater Victoria; and the Victoria and Albert Museum (London). She represented Canada in both the Sydney and Liverpool Biennales in 1998 and 2006, respectively. 10% of the proceeds from the sale of this lot will be donated to the 2015 Concrete Contemporary Acquisition Fund....
