Virtual gallery Width;700px and the actual Studio XX juxtapose their spaces to implement a cunning ploy, in an adroit and boorish manner, that will condemn the viewer to new issues.
The virtual infinite, shrunken to imposed containers, suddenly becomes invasive in the exhibit context. It forces the actual artworks to backup and strategically reunite to preserve their impact. In its literary assemblage, these corrupted images and objects present a tampered universe, derived from quotidian. The spatiotemporal breakage, along with the overprinted galleries give an obsolete feel to the physical space, frozen in time.
Sans feu ni lieu
Sans foi ni loi
A counterfeit, a subterfuge, a cluster of artifacts condemned to wandering.
Art Matters is a student-run festival that celebrates the vitality of Concordia University’s multidisciplinary artistic community. The festival promotes the emerging talent at Concordia by developing working relationships with creative institutions, galleries and artist run centers throughout Montréal.
