In the Wake of the Bind
January 16 - February 13, 2016

Opening Reception: Saturday January 16, 4 - 6pm

The gallery is pleased to welcome Hamilton-based artist David Trautrimas with a solo exhibition of new photographs.

We often speak of old, neglected buildings in anthropomorphic terms as having “good bones”. As such, the spectre of death already haunts the language we use to describe these forgotten places. What if, in their final demise, buildings were released from their foundations? What new forms would they take?

Using photographs of architectural ruins captured with his camera, David Trautrimas digitally excavates and reassembles source material to create portraits of structures that exist somewhere between the real and the completely imagined. Roofs collapse and funnel in the elements, walls crumble allowing unencumbered access into the interior and otherwise dark passages reveal themselves to the light. Brick, mortar, wood and stone – once the building blocks of civilization – are reassembled here to present a vision of a world bereft of humanity and one in which architecture has an afterlife.
