On view June 2-June 28, Wed.-Sat., 11am-6pm
During the month of June 2012, the entire new Art Metropole space at 1490 Dundas Street West will be transformed into a book in an installation by New York-based artist Robin Cameron.
Conceived as a book expanded into an exhibition space, T-R-U-T-H is the culmination of obsessive research referencing many disparate sources, ranging from short stories to cinema, and from hoaxes to philosophy. A web of connections is created around a single topic: Truth. These include short stories written by Lydia Davis, every film that Jean Pierre Leaude has starred in, a hoax about a Temporary Tattoo that contains LSD, and the interpretation of Lacan’s theories about Lack. Book pages give the viewer insight into the individual works, each relating back to the overarching theme. With each exhibition of the project, T-R-U-T-H is considered an edition of a book in the making – with each version arranged slightly differently than the last. On this occasion at Art Metropole, the book installation will be further transformed into a special multiple, available in an edition of 10 + 2 AP + 3 PP copies.
