Born and raised in Conception Bay South, Newfoundland, Zeke Moores explores the social and political economies of everyday objects and our complex relationships to them. By relying on traditional and industrial methods of manufacturing, Moores literal and metaphoric “recasts” seemingly unimportant mass-produced objects and everyday commodities; questioning their initial creation and the ideologies behind them. Moores has a BFA from Nova Scotia College of Art and Design, and an MFA from the University of Windsor Ontario. He has exhibited internationally at such institutions as the Memphis Metal Museum, The Rooms Provincial Art Gallery of Newfoundland, Grounds for Sculpture in Hamilton New Jersey, Art Mur in Montreal Quebec, and the Contemporary Art Institute of Detroit, Michigan. Moores currently teaches at the University of Windsor and is represented by Diaz Contemporary in Toronto Ontario. For this lecture Zeke Moores will discuss his practice while looking at the social constructs that have propelled the body of work that has been his focus for the last decade.
