This spectacular David Altmejd installation was featured for Canada at the 2007 Venice Biennale. The assembled spaces are a mix of mirrors, organic and man-made found objects, building towards what Altmejd calls “narative potential” Kelly Richardson is another young emerging Canadian artist working in the theme of man vs. nature technology in her video installation. ArtJetSet saw this piece at Birch Libralato a few years ago, and it was very happy to revisit it at the AGO. Advertisements
CANADA Lets be honest, I am Canadian and I love Canada, but the exterior of the pavillion looks like an outhouse!!David Altmejd creates a hallucinatory architectural environment mixing glass mirrors with natural elements businessman bodies with bird heads all culminating in Giant an anthropomorphic commentary on man nature and our highspeed society.
