“Quadratura” showcases four multi-media projection installations that repurpose obsolete audiovisual media such as 35 mm film, VHS tape, analogic television screens and the soon-to-disappear DVD. These media are sculpturally arranged so as to become screens, surfaces onto which video animations are projected. This effect seems to bring them back to life, exploring in this way the phantasmagorical properties of the moving image, and its psychic associations to desire and illusion. The artist attempts to liberate both personal and collective memories trapped within these technologies. Accelerated technological obsolescence seems to discard these memory-containers all too easily, and with them our sense of our past and our identity.
“Quadratura” is Daniel Canogar’s first solo exhibition in Scandinavia.
