Through a set of architectural studies in typology and program, Miles Gertler articulates a spatially and temporally indeterminate revisionist history in Superlith. Combining five related series into this exhibition, these works form a fragmentary archive that approximates the subject territory’s political context, customs, and crises. Using narrative as an alibi for an autonomous investigation into architectural typology, the work can be understood in two categories: those aspects that convey narrative material, and those that deal in the tectonic. The total work is speculative fiction.
Miles Gertler is an architectural based artist, a co-founder of Studio 93H, an artist run installation project, and will complete his graduate degree in architecture at Princeton University in 2016. His architectural practice, Common Accounts, is currently exploring architecture’s relationship with the material business of death in the city and is in design development of its first built project in Ontario.
This is Gertler’s first one-person exhibition at Corkin Gallery.
