Dream Pool Essays / Light in the Head

15 Aug – 9 Sep 1995

Light in the Head is Andrew Forster’s most recent bookwork. This book was published by Burning Editions, Montréal in conjunction with Nexus through photographs and text. Gil McElroy’s Dream Pool Essays: Model For A Cosmology is a mixed media installation which explores “how our social sense of place is shaped by the cosmology we accept as accurately reflecting the workings of the larger scheme of things…”. This installation incorporates a model of the Kogi people of Columba’s spindle-shaped cosmology. The exhibition was accompanied by a newsletter featuring a philosophical essay by Argentinian/Canadian artist Andreas Guibert.
