Canadian artist and filmmaker Jon Rafman is returning to the homeland with a solo show at Montréal’s Galerie Antoine Ertaskiran, titled HOPE SPRINGS ETERNAL II and running from October 15 to November 22.
The internet explorer (and archiver) continues his examination of the shifting nature of self in the context of modern technology and virtual living, using video works, installations, sculptures, prints, and traditional painting techniques to probe the subjectivity of memory and the collapse between the virtual and ‘the real’.
As part of the exhibition, Rafman will show his latest series, titled Manifolds and coming out of the Greek-like sculptural busts distorted and altered according to the specifications of the modern world in his earlier series, New Age Demanded.
