TORONTO: Corkin Gallery: Miles Gertler

Miles Gertler at Corkin Gallery

Through a set of architectural studies in typology and program, Miles Gertler articulates a spatially and temporally indeterminate revisionist history in Superlith.  Combining five related series into this exhibition, these works form a fragmentary archive that approximates the subject territory’s political context, customs, and crises. Using narrative as an alibi for an autonomous investigation into architectural typology, the work can be understood in two categories: those aspects that convey narrative material, and those that deal in the tectonic. The total work is speculative fiction.
