Filmpoem 33/ Allow Yourself This One Day (for Harper's Bazaar)

Commissioned by and poet/ model Allow Yourself This One Day is the final poem in Max's début pamphlet, Modern Love, where he traces the year-long course of a love affair and all its constituent parts: sex and sensuality, longing and loneliness, desire and disappointment, heady beginnings and inevitable endings; in a world dominated by high street brands, text messaging and social media.

Artist Statement

Carla Scott Fullerton is deeply engaged with sculpture, investigating materials process involved in construction and deconstruction, those being old and new.
She questions how forms and formless structures sit together, juxtaposing material forms through processes and playing with shapes that relate to architecture.
She works with heavy industrial materials such as cement and steel, allowing them to take on their own form. Devoid of their usual restrictions and through the irregular and unpredictable processes of pouring, the work is deliberately imperfect and free of the expected forms governed by the traditional notions of architecture.

James Carl Artist

Based in Toronto, James Carl is one of the city’s leading artists. He creates small- and large-scale sculpture, made from a wide range of materials, from cardboard to marble, to venetian blinds. In the early 1990s Carl entered the art scene in Montreal by crafting expensive consumer goods (washing machines, stoves) from inexpensive materials such as found cardboard, only to place the finished sculptures back on the streets where their materials were originally retrieved. In a subsequent body of work, Carl carved replicas of disposable electronics out of marble – a traditional sculptor’s material with connotations of permanence. Most recently, Carl constructs large-scale, amorphous sculptures by intricately weaving brightly coloured venetian blinds in a series titled jalousie.
Carl has exhibited extensively both nationally and internationally. Most recently, the first major survey of his work, entitled do you know what, was presented at the Justina M. Barnicke Gallery at the University of Toronto, the Cambridge Galleries Queen’s Square and the MacDonald Stewart Art Centre in Guelph. Other recent shows include: jalousie at Galerie Heinz-Martin Weigand in Karlsruhe, Germany; negative spaces at Florence Loewy in Paris; plot at Vancouver’s Contemporary Art Gallery, and bottom feeder at Mercer Union in Toronto.  Carl earned his MFA from Rutgers University and has degrees from McGill, the University of Victoria and the Central Academy of Fine Art in Beijing.  His work is in public and private collections across North America and Europe.  Currently, Carl is an Associate Professor of Studio Art at the University of Guelph.
