"Else-where. (After Turner): New work by David Scott Armstrong"
2007-06-20 until 2007-07-14
Red Head Gallery
Toronto, ON, CA Canada

The Redhead Gallery in Toronto presents "Else-where. (After Turner) New work by David Scott Armstrong" from June 20 to July 14, 2007. David Scott Armstrong’s art practice explores various aspects of reproducibility, time and entropy through an ongoing interest in print media. His work, which folds together traces of print, photography, and filmic, serial structure, is an encounter between technology and material dissolution, posing questions about the fundamental relationship between presence and pastness, language and materiality.

Else–where. (After Turner) is an exhibition of 16 photo-based prints about point of view, the image, and temporal/spatial displacement. Drawing upon J.M.W. Turner’s apocryphal genesis of his painting "Snow Storm" (and its later engraved print reproduction) where the artist was "lashed" to the mast of a steamer ship in order to experience first hand the effects of a storm at sea, this sequence of prints re-produces, by affixing a camera to the spinning cylinder of a printing press, a circular (vortex-like) encounter between machine and the disorientating effects of "weather".

For what interests the artist in this relationship between actual weather and pictorial weather, or, the disorientation and dissolution of pictorial form, is how an image, turning in on itself, vulnerable to its own tenuous stance, points to the possibility of an other space. We stand here fixed in the moment, divided between here and elsewhere.
