“If All You Have is a Hammer, Everything Looks Like a Nail”
Gendai, Reel Asian Film Festival and Trinity Square Video opened the newly commissioned work by Toronto-based artist Will Kwan. Titled, If All You Have is a Hammer, Everything Looks Like a Nail, Kwan’s new work forms a part of Gendai’s Model Minority program.
For the premiere exhibition of this work, Will Kwan has created a new three channel video that itself responds to an early multi-channel video installation by the Toronto artist John Massey. The central screen is inter cut with images depicting disparate mental impressions of the subjects arising in their conversation, capturing the instability of language and meaning.
The gallery is open from November 6–December 17, 2014.
Trinity Square Video is located at 401 Richmond Street West, Suite 376 in Toronto.
