"The CodFather" -  At this memorial service we put the FUN back in funeral! Join the Delivista "Family" as they mourn the passing of Eddy The Shark Delivista, a.k.a. The CodFather. Everyone who attends is considered FAMILY so get reunited with long lost relatives, but be careful! There's a killer at large and a body is bound to drop before long! Don't forget to get your mugshot and sign the memorial book beside the casket! This will definitely be a memorial service you'll never forget.

This is POPCORN THEATRE. No rubber chicken here! Complimentary popcorn is the only food served during the show so arrive early and grab dinner before the show at the Prescott or at one of the fabulous restaurants in the area, but don't be late...

Show starts at 8pm sharp and runs about 2 hours. Our hilarious whodunnits are rated PG, gun play but no bad language.

July 18-August 15, 2015. Vernissage: Saturday, July 18, 3 p.m. Round table discussion: Saturday, July 18, 4 p.m. with the artist and James D. Campbell. Gallery 101, 51 B Young Street, Ottawa, Ontario.
Behind Closed Doors: Body of Evidence examines the question of artist as criminal. This reflection in the figurative sense leads Niederstrass to wonder about the artist’s research process and his way to oscillate between the acceptable rules and limits of art without transgressing them.

The main objective of this research is firstly to bring the viewer to reconstruct a story, a scene, a speculative action in relation to the installation. Based on the work of Marcel Duchamp titled Étant donnés: 1° la chute d'eau, 2° le gaz d'éclairage (1946-1966) as well as the instruction manual for the construction of this installation, Niederstrass tries to simulate the artist’s work space while adding some components guiding us towards clues that will allow us to assume the potential involvement of Duchamp in the murder of Elizabeth Short, known as the “Black Dahlia.”
