At the opening, Markus Müller (art historian, journalist, and curator) will talk to Gaëtane Verna (Director, The Power Plant, Toronto) about the diverse practice of Ydessa Hendeles.
Death to Pigs is the first institutional retrospective of Canadian artist Ydessa Hendeles in Europe. Hendeles interweaves personal experience with narrated and interpreted elements. In her complex room installations, she places art, historical artifacts, photography and audiovisual media in myriad interrelationships with one another. Her compositions can be read as provocative, psychologically charged meditations on human nature.
