Opening Reception: November 29, 2-5pm
Exhibition Dates: November 29, 2014 – January 17, 2015
The gallery is pleased to present the first Canadian exhibition of work by Gábor Kerekes (1945 – 2014.) This exhibition will focus on works from his best known series, “Stars and Science.”
Kerekes was a master at exploring photography in a particular style, so that art and science can be seen cohesively. Many of his photographs are of scientific instruments and items one would find in a laboratory. Other images by Kerekes trick the eye, taken with pinhole cameras, large format cameras and using antique developing methods, so the viewer believes they are straight photographs of planets and stars, while in reality, many are of everyday objects such as apples, tennis balls and lighting conductors.
