Vtape co-presents with TIFF Cinematheque Free Screen, four works by French artist Dominique Gonzalez-Foerster explore the nuances and peculiarities of man-made environments. Gonzalez-Foerster has been querying our relationship to built environments since the early 1990s, studying parks, urban enclaves and modernist architecture to understand and critique their utopian promise, and articulating her discoveries by creating “chambres” — rooms reminiscent of film sets that create juxtapositions between time periods and atmospheres — which draw attention to the malfunctions of purpose-built environments.
Screening: 7:00pm at TIFF Bell LightBox.
Program includes: Plages, Taipei (Parc Central), De Novo, and No Return.
