Nick Heer & Alex Moon
Location: EMMEDIA Gallery – 2005 10 Ave SW
February 1 – March 2, 2019 (Gallery hours: Tues-Sat 12-6PM, closed on Feb 16)
Opening Reception: February 1, 2019 @ 7-10PM
An installation exploring the insidious corruptibility of our material and personal relationships through the internet. We communicate haphazardly, moving from pillar to post, through cables and oscillations. The desire of connecting to each other being the very thing driving us apart. An inquisition about connectedness in the cold monolithic spheres of data.
Nick Heer graduated in 2014 from the Alberta College of Art + Design (ACAD), and has exhibited at ACAD and Untitled Arts Society. His media arts education is combined with programming and immersive installations to provoke discussion by turning discomfort and perversion into delight, and vice-versa.
Alex Moon is a video and installation artist practicing and consulting predominantly in Canada. He earned a BFA in Print Media from the Alberta College of Art + Design (ACAD) in 2008. Weaving intricate narratives from past experience and activist theory, much of his life experience is ploughed into his work with a touch of the absurd. Moon has exhibited at Struts Gallery, EMMEDIA, Galerie Sans Nom, The Works Festival, The Red Deer Museum, and The University of Lethbridge. He is a technician at ACAD serving many disciplines.
