Diviney’s recent installations find connections between the structures of our cultural allegories and the material language of sculpture. His work—loosely based in traditions of assemblage, additive/subtractive construction and found objects—locates a unique connotative resonance in banal, yetHOLLOW presents a sculptural and photographic array that draws on a decidedly pastoral vernacular of folk-art and back-woods building, pioneer tales and foundational myths. Comprised of familiar household and consumer products—socks, balaclavas, buckets and low-grade renovation supplies—Diviney’s installation detects an uncanny, humourous, and at times menacing subtext to our often-ignored, gentrified surroundings.

His objects and appropriated imagery illicit both the pleasures and pitfalls of the survivalist imagination, the can-do spirit of frontier ingenuity and the deeply psychological weight of physical isolation. As such, HOLLOW conflates our typical lexicons of the rural, creating a perceptually baffling environment that speaks to the ever-evolving barter between civilization and wilderness, community and self-reliance, as well as the continuing weight of this discourse on the popular imagination.
