Curator Cliff Eyland: "KC Adams uses herself and her aboriginal friends as subjects. Ever the fashionista, she creates glamorous and sexy photographs that give her subjects darker complexions, just as Vogue and W magazines do, but with the intention of imparting to them a more "aboriginal" look. She also creates accessories, several of which will be included in the Gallery One One One show, including t-shirts, an iPod holder, a USB beaded bracelet, a cell phone carrier, a LED choker and LED flip flop shoes - what she calls 'cyborg hybrid artifacts'."
Adams's Gallery One One One show complemented a concurrent solo show, Transcendence - cyborg hybrida genitalis humanitas, August 31 - October 14, 2006,
at the Art Gallery of Southwestern Manitoba. in Brandon, curated by Catherine Mattes.
On 6 October 2006 Gallery One One One organized a van trip from Winnipeg to Brandon so that many of Adams's subjects could see both installations.
The KC ADAMS CD-ROM includes the texts and images about KC Adams that are on this web site. Gallery One One One, School of Art, Main Floor, FitzGerald Building, University of Manitoba Fort Garry campus, Winnipeg, MB, CANADA R3T 2N2
