David Hoffos
Catastrophe
June 30 - July 28, 2001

Lethbridge artist David Hoffos’ installation is borne of a fascination with outdated genre films, in particular the crude special effects found in 1970s disaster movies such as Earthquake and Airport. A model of a destroyed and rubble strewn city amalgamated from children’s toys is enclosed behind walls in the gallery. Viewed through windows, ghostly groups of moving figures were seen in reflection, including projected images of gallery goers themselves.
