Cultural Debris:  A Flea Market Art Exhibit was originally presented by the Niagara Artists Centre at their Factory Outlet Flea Market Gallery in St. Catharines over the summer of 2011.  NAC had approached me about doing an exhibition mostly using things found in flea markets.  “Cultural Debris, the exhibit, is a collection of work created by manipulating and assembling objects I found in Niagara’s largest emporium of cast-off goods, the Factory Outlet Flea Market. It was a veritable archaeological dig into the past several decades of Western pop culture. This exhibit responds to a range of considerations including the waste generated by a throw-away society of material consumerists as well as the redolence and nostalgia that lost objects hold.  Doug Carter
