Christina Zeidler - Simulacra
Run dates: October 2014 - December 2014
Zeidler's exhibition "Simulacra" is an on-going exploration of the poetic possibilities of the simulated image to evoke emotion. The high fidelity nature photography in the installation creates a false deep woods environment. This technique quotes photographic nature wallpaper, a cliche of tacky design and simulated experiences. Christina Zeidler is a Toronto based artist with gallery installation and works in film projects. Christina was named one of Toronto's 10 best Filmmakers by Cameron Bailey artistic director of TIFF.
Zeidler is one half of the euro-electronica-pop-diva sensation "ina unt ina" and part of the newly formed band "Mintz". She was one of the founding curators of CUTMR, was a feature designer at IIDEX 2012, shows her design work at MADE, and has a feature film in development. She is also President and Developer of The Gladstone Hotel in Toronto with 37 artist designed hotel rooms, and took a community-based approach to the redevelopment of the building and business.
