An installation at
the Natural Light Window Gallery,
506 Adelaide St. West, Toronto, Ontario
view Oct 2 - 31, 2000 : daylight to bedtime
tel. (416) 504-1311
At the front of this gallery are two picture windows and a glass door. From the street, you can see the installation through the windows during the gallery owner¹s waking hours. It will be particularly dramatic after dark.
The installation has a foreground and a background. Two small sculptures, a hunter with a gun and a guardian angel, revolve in opposite directions close to the window. A cluster of figures is projected on a scrim in the background, a little like javanese puppet theatre.
A guardian angel follows a curious boy, who follows the hunter who follows the soldiers. Like most looped sequences, one pursues another in a continual procession of unfulfilled desire.
