Recycled lamp parts, electrical wire, sockets, bulbs, shade frames and plugs, 2006
Lisa Neighbour was born in Montreal, Quebec, and now lives and works in Toronto, Ontario. She graduated from the Ontario College of Art and Design (General Studies, 1982), and received an MFA from York University in 2009. She exhibits with Persona Volare, a collective of Toronto-based installation and media artists, and is represented by Katharine Mulherin Contemporary Art in Toronto. Neighbour is presently a member of the faculty of the Art and Art History Program, a joint program between Sheridan College and UTM. Lisa Neighbour’s recent work incorporates lights and electrical hardware as media and as metaphor. Neighbour also uses print media, drawing, video and sculpture to conduct a search for the miraculous qualities in commonplace materials.
You can see Lisa’s Floating Lamps in the cafe.
