Untitled (home) by Melissa Penney

Toronto artist Melissa Penney's "Untitled (home)" is a mixed media installation comprised of a neon sign, four painted canvases and a doll's house. She created it for the OCAD thesis course in Sculpture and Multimedia in collaboration with Gallery 1313,  Katharine Mulherin Contemporary Art Projects and Tomorrow Gallery. It's currently on view at Gallery 1313 in Parkdale, Toronto.

We spoke about the work when I visited the gallery recently. She has been researching different kinds of homes and houses in Ontario, and in this installation, she uses different materials as a way to explore and represent different notions of "home". Here's a 30 second video of the installation:

You can see Melissa's installation at Gallery 1313 until April 1. You can follow her on Twitter: @melissa_penney.
