Structures for the Expanded Plane
Working across disciplines, Chris Foster works to understand and deconstruct subliminal structures of power in architecture and the built environment. His creative process is motivated by public projects, site-specific installations, and design/build collaborations. Foster’s studio practice embraces a do-it-yourself methodology, engaging acts of resistance in reuse, repair, and maintenance to subvert systems of built-in obsolescence and to reimagine material ecologies. Most recently he has been experimenting with projection and the play between light, motion, and architecture.
Chris Foster received an interdisciplinary BFA from the Nova Scotia College of Art (NSCAD) in 2008. His artwork has been exhibited internationally, including the Harbourfront Centre; the Art Gallery of Ontario; Eastern Edge Gallery (St. John’s, Nfld), the Mount Saint Vincent University Art Gallery (Halifax, NS), the Khyber Centre for the Arts (Halifax, NS); Eyelevel Gallery (Halifax, NS), Gallery Connexion (Fredericton, NB), the Odd Gallery (Dawson City, YK), and as part of cultural events including Nuit Blanche Toronto; Halifax Nocturne; and WRECK CITY (Calgary, AB). He is based in Toronto. View his work at www.chrisfoster.ca.
