ART NOIR

Where Ottawa - - Hot Art -

The set­ting is a North Hal­i­fax neigh­bour­hood. Leav­ing his house in the morn­ing, a man dis­cov­ers that a white couch has been placed anony­mously on the curb out­side his door, which sets off a se­ries of en­coun­ters (some pleas­ant, other less so) with his neigh­bours. Mathew Re­ichertz’s Garbage, a large-scale comic book that blurs the line be­tween nar­ra­tive and art, ex­plores the un­healthy re­la­tion­ships that some­times oc­cur within com­mu­ni­ties, and how sim­ple com­mu­ni­ca­tion can re­veal the good­ness in oth­ers. On dis­play at the Car­leton Univer­sity Art Gallery un­til April 3. (p. 41)
