Impervious neon sites

THE NEON GOD WE MADE

Gender-smashing multimedia artist Keith Murray has created a black-light and glow-in-the-dark wonderland in the customarily bright Truck Gallery. Neon neon neon is the name of the game. Amidst the swirling psychedelia of the installation is a large video of Murray with a naked hermaphroditic body singing “I Will Always Love You” by Whitney Houston. Don’t bring grandma to this one (unless she’s super cool).

The Neon God We Made runs until May 9 at Truck Gallery.

IMPERVIOUS

Metal sculptures brightly coloured with industrial-strength paint adorn Skew Gallery’s white space. Alexander Caldwell’s perfectly crafted minimalist pieces are a departure from his previous representations of natural phenomena using more refined shapes.

Impervious runs until May 9 at Skew Gallery.
