Geoffrey Farmer: A Way Out Of The Mirror

$ 45.00

Vancouver-based Geoffrey Farmer (born 1967) is internationally known for his laboriously crafted projects of epic proportions combining theatrical techniques with historically sourced material.

Developed over extended periods of time, the artist’s multilayered works pursue multiple narratives, appearing in a constant state of transformation, as he continues to revisit and alter them.

Presented at the Canadian Pavilion for the 2017 Venice Biennale, and named after an Allen Ginsberg poem, A Way out of the Mirror includes found-photographic and sculptural components that together constitute a meditation on the damage that seeps down through generations, drawing on his own history and his relationship with his father, as well as images of his grandfather’s car accident, and diving deeply into a more universal contemplation of truth and reconciliation.
