Igloo artists

Martelli/Gibson (igloo)


Extract from James Taylor Gallery-
Inspired by the artists’ travels to the snow-driven mountains of the Canadian Rockies VISITOR was developed following research at The Banff Arts Centre. Vermilion Lake comprises a full-scale replica of a trapper’s cabin housing an interactive virtual environment. A companion moving image piece, where the bears are sleeping, depicts monochromatic imagery of glaciers, forests and frozen lakes. In both works, either a friendly or malevolent force is suggested, evoking the hunter being hunted, the tracker being tracked. Employing techniques used in video games, bringing exterior virtual space into the physical gallery space the exhibition plays with our anticipation of different forms of reality.’
