The Canadian artist (b.1946) has since the late 1970s worked with transparent photographs placed in illuminated advertisement display cases. In this exhibition the focus is on the art-historical connections in his work, where pointers to celebrated historical achievements in art are frequently in evidence. His photographs are often carefully staged like a scene in a film, with full control of all details. Their composition always well thought through, and often borrowed from classical painters like Edouard Manet. The themes are social and political, such as urban violence, racism, poverty, gender and class conflicts.
