Snort – Gwen MacGregor


Posted September 30th, 2013

This month Ikono is proud to present Gwen MacGregor as artist of the month. Her visual inquiry of time and the ambivalent relationship between nature and technology are translated into video works that are haunting, mesmerizing and with a hint of irony, creating unexpected visual surprises.

For our Artist of the Month series we have chosen four works that we feel perfectly fit Ikono’s format and also showcase the formal and visual language of the artist.

Snort – A very simple video documenting the destruction of a building. The framing of the camera transforms a common situation into a surreal scene, shifting between irony, loss and straightforward documentation.
