Present Tense 22: David Hoffos
Another City, a monumental work by Lethbridge, Alberta artist David Hoffos, refers to the history of cinema and to world's fair pavilions. The overall construction mimics a Victorian-era Cyclorama designed to house 360° panoramas. A mirrored chamber within contains a little high-rise cityscape. Throughout, video projections appear to move in real space.
Hoffos is represented by TrépanierBaer, Calgary and João Graça, Lisbon.
Special thanks to Ken Bradley for his assistance with this exhibition.
Exhibition on view in the Matina Chrones Gallery, Level 2.
