As You Were.
In 1991, the Surrey Art Gallery began discussions with Micah Lexier on the presentation of a survey of his site-specific installations. The result was a two-part project: a gallery exhibition and a new site-specific work. The exhibition Micah Lexier: Site-Specific Installations Re-presented featured ten of Lexier’s artworks, created since 1982.
Commissioned by the Surrey Art Gallery, Surrey, B.C., to create a work about the local community, As You Were is an outdoor, site-specific public work installed in conjunction with an exhibition at the Surrey Art Gallery. The piece was originally intended to be temporary but is presently still installed. It remains a long-term loan to the International Forest Products, Mackenzie Senzai Division lumber mill. A gift from the artist, the piece is currently part of the collection of the Surrey Art Gallery (1996.17.01)
