March 28 - April 21, 2012
Opening: Saturday, March 31, 2 - 5pm
The Red Head Gallery presents Greg McRoberts, a new photo and video installation by Zev Farber, which explores biographical narrative and our connection to the elusive origins of creative/destructive impulses.
This body of work draws upon a fixed storyline, to which imagery alludes, while Farber's response to the continuum of suggested events is embedded in sound and text. Themes of loss and re-emergence comingle with traces of a material history, inspired moments and the paradoxes of imagined experience.
The representation of familiar, evocative objects and archival elements encourages the viewer to form a relationship with an abstract, unfolding story, while questions around authorship and authenticity complicate notions of objectivity and the personal.
Zev Farber is an interdisciplinary artist based in Toronto. He studied music at the University of Toronto and received his MFA in Visual Art from York University. He has shown work and performed in a number of Canadian and international galleries, including Blackwood Gallery, InterAccess Electronic Media Arts Centre, Flux Factory in New York and the Incheon Biennale in South Korea. Farber currently also works at OCAD University. This is Zev Farber's first exhibition with The Red Head Gallery.
