Feel in your body, a file downloadin'
Francoise Gamma uses obsolete software to create her delightfully bizarre animated GIFs. Graphically rendered figures, contorted, mutated and distorted, arise, stride, cavort, explode or collapse in a jerky ballet performed in a cyber space limbo where the strangest things can, and do, happen.
Francoise Gamma is a Toronto-born, Barcelona-based artist whose work has been featured in group exhibitions at the Tate Modern in London, Museum Boijmans van Beuningen in Rotterdam, BOZAR in Belgium and the Museo Sourmaya in Mexico City on the Kanye West blog, and in a solo exhibition as part of the American Fantasy Classics series. She is a member of the online art collective Computers Club.
Francoise Gamma most recently took part in Simulators II at Angell Gallery in Toronto, a digital art-focused curation that ran from February 21 to March 22, 2014. This is also the second edition to the Simulators project at Angell Gallery. Click here for more information.
