Not over you


Not over you


two sided poster multiple

Commissioned for the Dunlop Art Gallery exhibition Tragedy Plus Time, curated by Blair Fornwald, Jennifer Matotek, and Wendy Peart.

Not over you communicates a spatial and affective state. It is a sign installed at a building’s roofline, and as a result, the piece is most often physically above its audiences. The text featured in this work inverts the object’s spatial situation and evokes a non-heirarchical system as well as a nostalgic condition. A new poster multiple associated with the project was specially printed for a solo exhibition at Artspace. In 2017, a second, two-sided edition of this multiple was printed for an exhibition at Contemporary Calgary.

This piece is part of a suite of works titled Not, including Not the one but there is no one else, first shown at the Sobey Art Award exhibition in 2013.

Mark Clintberg is an artist who works in the field of art history. He is represented by Pierre François Ouellette art contemporain in Montreal, Canada, and is an Associate Professor in the School of Critical and Creative Studies at the Alberta University of the Arts.
