“Taking Care of Business” is a performance/installation that lasts the run of the exhibition. The performance involves the artist creating a multi-wall, floor-to-ceiling mural of an office space out of post-it-notes. The artist, Immony Men, will spend each day of the exhibition working 9-5 printing out a 360° view of an office one post it note at a time until the main walls of grunt gallery are filled. The artist writes:

“I am mesmerized by the drudgery of daily office routine. The pattern I have established in the creation of these kinds of murals attempts to replicate this drudgery. The performance aspect of my work is the actual construction of the mural. I want the raw elements behind the creation of the project to be in the forefront: the physical space taken up, the artist’s repetitive movements, the materials used in full evidence. By subjecting myself to a mind-numbing process, I will also create and exhibit the mental state fallen into in performing iterative tasks” (Immony Men)

Immony Men is a Canadian visual artist currently based in Montreal and Toronto. He is a recent graduate of the MFA Visual Arts program at University of Windsor. He has completed Concordia’s BFA program majoring in Interdisciplinary Studies within Studio Arts. Immony is a member of the Broken City Lab research group; an initiative that tactically disrupts and engages the city of Windsor.
