Idle Wild, an exhibition by the Vancouver-based DRIL artist collective, opened with a reception Oct. 19 at host gallery Caf‚ for Contemporary Art.
The two pieces on display explore the relationship between the idea of nature, the built environment and collective subconscious. One work shows a grid of porcelain homes forming a ghostly version of the archetypal suburb. The second work is a four-channel video installation of a drive through a typical neighbourhood that surrounds viewers on four walls.
The free exhibition continues until Nov. 16 at the caf‚ and gallery space located at 140 East Esplanade in North Vancouver.
