Artist Talk, April 28, 2pm
CONTACT Gallery, 80 Spadina Ave, Suite 205

The 21st century has seen a dramatic shift in the way that architecture is experienced. Advancements in technology have enabled architectural representation to visualize the built environment through the lens of the virtual, generating digital renderings that depict both proposed and already-built structures as future projections.

For her new site-specific project Arcades, which includes an exhibition in the CONTACT gallery and a mural on the north facade of the building at 460 King St W, London-based artist Felicity Hammond considers how camera-less modes of representing architecture implies a virtual archaeology, as existing buildings are reimagined through image-generating software. Vistas of new cityscapes appear to excavate the past in order to renew the present, and our experience of architecture in the physical realm becomes shadowed by such images.
