Julia Callon
Supermarket, 2013
from the series in progress

In this newest series by Toronto-based Julia Callon, she has constructed small scale models of places that we consider to be “necessities” of life (a bank, a grocery store) and wreaks havoc on our sense of order and routine. She disrupts our comfort zone to take a closer look at our culture of abundance and excess. “Supermarket” and “Royal Bank” are a hybridization of photography and constructed small scale models, that represent otherwise highly organized places in a state of chaos and disarray. Julia hand made 90% of everything you see, except for the grocery cart and a few chairs, which she bought from a model supply company online. She measures each item to scale, and fastidiously places them within the set, using fishing line and wire. 



They are also a comment on the ever-changing landscape of how we interact with these necessities in the digital age - as more people shift to new ways of doing things, like shopping online.
