Berlin-based Ingo Gerken’s first Canadian solo exhibition features Cityworks, photographs capturing urban surroundings with key moments of direct intervention in the picture. A subversive space is created (within the artist’s reach) where both photographic and urban surfaces appear perforated. By logging into the perspective space, Gerken plays with borders between model-like and monumental, action and sculpture, photography and painting, everyday and art-historical, private view and public space. The artistic process is itself documented as a fleeting and fragile construct that exists for a brief moment. Ingo Gerken is represented by Gitte Weise Gallery, Berlin.
