Karen Jordon has a show at The Mississippi Valley Textie Museum with Norman Takeuchi until January 12, 2013 . No the museum in not in Mississippi, it is in Almonte, Ontario, 53 km from Ottawa, which is really not that far in North American standards, but you would need to have a car, forget about convenient public transport!

Karen has also another dutch connection in her past. She was part of a group show curated by Petra in 2005 together with a dutch artist, Chrystl Rijkeboer, at L’Imagier. L’imagier is in Québec, but from Ottawa, Québec means on the other side of the river. You can read more about Karen’s work with hair in Petra’s curatorialstatement.

Here are some pictures of the exhibition in which “ Karen Jordon’s autobiographical hair sculptures are coupled with Norman Takeuchi’s drawings of her sculptures.”

  1. Karen and Norm’s exhibition was stunning. Norm’s large drawings of Karen’s tiny hairpieces were a wonderful juxtaposition.
