The Corruption of Time’s Dust is an exhibition of works by Nadia Belerique, Richard Fedoruk, Steven Hubert, Sylvain Sailly and Tegan Moore.
Time Dust (1992) is a work by James Rosenquist which uses the layering of several different printing methods to form a gigantic image of a delirious pop spacescape. This same process was used in the advertising of the time, where the integration and technical development of several mediums helped to produce a seamless and fantastical space. This was a seamlessness that montage had not yet achieved. Its convincing definition and realism, coupled with the spatial juxtaposition adopted from collage, depicted a proto-digital delirium – where the interior states of objects and figures spread out into a continuum.

And He Built A Crooked House is an exhibition of works by Lauren Cherry and Max Springer (Los Angeles), Valérian Goalec (Brussels) and Nicolas Sassoon (Biarritz/Vancouver) that explores French theorist Georges Bataille’s concept of Base Materialism.
The exhibition takes its title from a short story by Robert A. Heinlein involving a house newly designed by the protagonist Quintus Teal that, as a result of an unexpected earthquake, challenges the traditional structure of linear architecture. The house amalgamates into a 4-dimensional object which renders it into a baseless foundation that can only be described as a blob mixture of multi-functional provisions.
