Blue Flame: Constructions and Initiatives

December 21, 2016 @ 10:00 am - February 5, 2017 @ 5:00 pm

December 3, 2016 to February 5, 2017 | SOUTHERN ALBERTA ART GALLERY

Opening reception: Saturday, December 3, at 8 PM | Sponsored by Three Legged Dog Design

Anton Ginzburg, a New York-based artist, born in the USSR, presents a new body of work titled Blue Flame: Constructions and Initiatives. The exhibition explores the collapse of the modern universalist project. Visitors encounter a series of artistic investigations recalling Constructivist pedagogical experiments combined with the artist’s personal mythologies. It culminates in Turo (Tower in Esperanto), a film exploring post-Soviet geography and Constructivist architecture.

Modernity is interpreted as an updated Tower of Babel project that exists as an archive of ruins. Exploring various methods of representation, the video’s structure combines cinematic narrative, videogame footage, and digital abstraction.
