Railbender Gallery presents Multi-Tools, a solo exhibit by Ottawa artist Mat Dubé. The multimedia exhibit includes 18 new paintings and an animated video projection which is accompanied by an original soundscape.
This painting and video exhibition focuses on the commodification of animals, on their transformation into products and tools and on the intrinsic connection between humans and the natural world. The new body of work, a follow-up to Dube's Body of Thought, was created between May and September 2014 during Dubé’s artist residency tour in Toronto, Ólafsfjördur (Iceland), Berlin and Barcelona. A portion of the work was exhibited in Berlin and Barcelona past summer (2014) and the completed series will now be shown at Railbender Gallery.
