The Red Head Gallery presents Greg McRoberts,   a new photo and video installation by Zev Farber, which explores  biographical narrative and our connection to the elusive origins of  creative/destructive impulses.

This body of work draws upon a  fixed storyline, to which imagery alludes, while Farber’s response to  the continuum of suggested events is embedded in sound and text. Themes   of loss and re-emergence comingle with traces of a material history,  inspired moments and the paradoxes of imagined experience.

The  representation of familiar, evocative objects and archival elements  encourages the viewer to form a relationship with an abstract, unfolding   story, while questions around authorship and authenticity complicate   notions of objectivity and the personal.

Zev  Farber is an interdisciplinary artist based in Toronto. He studied music  at the University of Toronto and received his MFA in Visual Art from  York University. He has shown work and performed in a number of Canadian  and international galleries, including Blackwood Gallery, InterAccess  Electronic Media Arts Centre, Flux Factory in New York and the Incheon  Biennale in South Korea. Farber currently also works at OCAD  University.  This is Zev Farber’s first exhibition with The Red Head  Gallery.
