Ingrid Mida @ Loop & on Artsync TV
All is Vanity is the translation of the latin Vanitus Vanitum, a biblical reference to the transitory nature of life. This theme conveys the vanity of pursuing earthly pleasures and accomplishments in the face of certain death. In this series of photographic self-portraits, Ingrid Mida attempts to convey the emotions of grief and also poses the question of "whether beauty and death are facets of the same experience”.
Ingrid Mida has exhibited her work in Toronto galleries since 2003. Embracing a variety of mediums including drawing, sculpture, installation and photography in her practice, her work explores the intersection of fashion, art and life. Ingrid also works part-time as an assistant to a curator of fashion and textiles and is author of the widely read blog Fashion is my muse!
All is Vanity continues its run at Loop Gallery until Sunday, February 13, 2011. The gallery is located at 1273 Dundas Street West in Toronto, just East of Dovercourt.
