Misled by Nature: Contemporary Art and the Baroque

by Emese Krunák-Hajagos

Large rotting Wookies, a frosted ice cave and a gorgeous candelabra greet the visitors in Mocca’s warehouse-like interior. These three, rather shocking, monumental installations are very impressive but somewhat challenging.

Misled by Nature

by Alice Tallman

This show has brought together elements of fantasy and artifice combined with issues of excess and exploitation. Rather than being misled by nature, one could say that this exhibition presents a world that has gone against nature.

Art Toronto 2013 / The changes

An Te Liu / Mono No Ma

by Alice Tallman

An Te has used industrial objects to create these works, they bare little resemblance to the human forms that are alluded to in their titles. He has created his own lexicon through his selection of found materials, melding together the ancient and the modern.
