Where Toronto: Hot Art: Propaganda Portraits

April 10 to 29 . 2010

Yorkville’s Ingram Gallery offers artful visions of dystopia with the exhibition Moterwerks 8: Entropika. The latest series of works in an ambitious project started in 1994, Andrew Bell’s photo-based mixed-media pieces, including Idoru Zero II, depict a protagonist dubbed “The Aeronaut” as she navigates a Mad Max-meets- Metropolis world fractured by humankind’s lust for power and control. Melding pseudo-historical and science fiction elements with visual techniques employed by the modern mass media, the Soviet-style images remind us that the machines of corporate and political repression remain subtly pervasive to this day.
