"Nothing to Declare" has quite a lot to say, actually, about form, material and current sculptural practice, and particularly thrillingly, how vital and alive it is right here on the home front. I didn't think this could surprise me, the strength of "Nothing to Declare" lies in discoveries I thought myself long-past. This is partly because of the installation – it's loose, cavernous, breezy and undirected; on purpose or not, I don't know – and partly because much of the work is either by younger artists, and so new – much of it from the last year or so – that even the senior artists present here, like Vancouver's Liz Magor, seem fresh."
