Lauren Schaffer Text

Montreal artist Lauren Schaffer will be exhibiting a new series of sculptures in the Library Gallery at the Khyber from March 5th to April 2nd, 1996. Using the double-salon gallery, Schaffer is installing twelve enlarged diamond forms fabricated in industrial porcelain on several over-sized shelving units.

Originally exhibited in Montreal in the Cathcart, a building housing workshop for the jewellery industry, the reproductions of gems in porcelain draw attention to the values attributed to luxury items and precious materials.
