Gareth Moore’s practice is an enigmatic blend of exploration and pilgrimage, magic and myth, fact and fiction. Moore consistently challenges the intersection between the accidental and the aesthetic. Exhibitions of his work often take the form of objects collected on these journeys, adding up to a kind of totemic inventory of incident and experience.
His work has been shown nationally and internationally, including at the CCA Wattis Institute; Witte de With; the Power Plant and dOCUMENTA (2013). Moore was shortlisted for the Future Generation Art Prize, (2010) and the Sobey Art Award, (2012).
Gareth Moore (b.1975) lives and works in Vancouver, Canada.
