New video installation: Notes From The Underground

Gladstone Hotel, Toronto, Canada

Check out a new video installation by Peter Mettler at Grow Op 2019!

Notes From the Underground is a single-channel continuously looping video installation that provides a window into the very creation of our world – the literal ground we walk on – in real time. Images of molten lava provide a cascading array of alchemical forms that transmute rock elements into visual echoes of soft tissues, liquid clouds, arrested flames, and anthropomorphic hallucinations. Notes From the Underground is like a fireplace channel for Gaia, in which the cauldron of the earth forms the ground from which our selves and all our expressions emerge.

Grow Op 2019 at the Gladstone Hotel celebrates its seventh year with an exhibition of art, design and ideas across a range of disciplines. The 2019 edition considers ENERGY – Clean energy, dirty energy, social energy, positive energy, negative energy, climate energy, embodied energy, resilient energy. Do we hoard, waste, commodify, burn it, or do we store, reuse, renew it? How humans and other species live within and without natural systems of growth, change, abundance, scarcity, decay and life.

Curated by Christine Leu and Alan Webb of LeuWebb Projects, with Lee Petrie, Exhibitions Director, Gladstone Hotel.
