|The Red Head Gallery is pleased to present Errata (18 to 34), an exhibition by artist Zev Farber.
Zev Farber’s recent work takes the form of multimedia installations which present deconstructed, character-driven narratives that address the complexities of various types of systems. Farber produces work primarily utilizing digital technologies – photo, video, interactive and sound – in order to complicate notions of authorship and authenticity. Often, his work will emphasize the duality of creative and destructive impulses and the struggle to strike a balance between them.
In 2010, the multimedia installation If It Happened At All, It Happened This Way drew on a fictional story-within-a-story involving the unresolved investigation into a family that suddenly and unexpectedly disappeared. Following this, in 2012, was the non-fiction installation Greg McRoberts, which covered a forty-year period in the title subjects’ life as a prolific, but conflicted, maker. Errata (18 to 34) leverages Farber’s own personal history to complete a trilogy of installations. Collapsing time, site and memory within the context of a particularly formative period, this exhibition offers “corrections” juxtaposed against combined fragments of archival material in order to remedy lost encounters, broken bonds and an obscured, incomplete sense of the future.
