Evan Arbic (b. 1998) is a Toronto-based artist whose conceptually grounded and visually layered installations are eclectic; embracing dialogues between multiple subject matters and mediums. Using readymade or found objects as a central material in creating performances, sculptures, and photographs, Arbic observes the familiar to be teeming with humour, insight and poetic potential when function, spatial arrangement or context are altered. He is known for his durational performance The Bible Piece in which Arbic read aloud the King James Bible cover to cover continuously. This performance, which took 86 hours to complete, was live-streamed. Arbic is currently in the final year of his BFA in the Image Arts Integrated Digital program at Ryerson University.
