|ISTVAN KANTOR: MACHINERY EXECUTION
AT THE ART GALLERY OF YORK UNIVERSITY
From 9 February - 3 April 2005, the AGYU presents the opportunity for the public
to examine the controversial work of Istvan Kantor, 2004 Governor General's Award winner in Visual and Media Arts. The exhibition concentrates on his recent works overlooked in the media controversy: Kantor's interactive machine and video works.
A new work, Spielraum/Playroom - Remains of a Revolution, transforms the AGYU into an
interactive installation involving live video feeds, projections, and robotics. Also shown
will be the feature-length video Lebensraum/Lifespace - Spectacle of Noise (2004),
a semi-autobiographical, science-fiction allegory on the battle for living space
in and the gentrification of Capital City (Toronto) and the resistance that combats it.
The Art Gallery of York University is located at 4700 Keele St. in the North Ross building
of York University, Suite 145. Gallery hours are: Monday to Friday,
10 am - 4 pm; Wednesday, 10 am - 8 pm; Sunday, noon-5; Saturday, closed.
Admission is free.
