Description

Geoffrey Farmer has one of the most destabilizing voices of today’s young Vancouver artists. Working mainly in installation and photography, he integrates video, performance and other means associated with conceptual art. Through an aesthetics of accumulation he explores pop culture, art history and the very act of exhibiting. Among the works presented in this first monograph are an installation originally created in a bank and a life-sized reconstitution of a Hollywood-style trailer. Refigured through an array of tangents and additions, Farmer’s installations are at once subtle and overwhelming. The publication presents major works produced over the last fifteen years along with new pieces produced especially for the exhibition. In English and French.

With texts by Pierre Landry, curator at the Musée d’art contemporain de Montréal, Jessica Morgan, curator at Tate Modern and Scott Watson, director of the Belkin Gallery at the University of British Columbia.
