What's On: Despite Intentions

Posted by Bryony Quinn,

Despite Intensions is an exhibition documenting the architectural landscape of southern California. The work has been carried out by John Divola and Amir Zaki, colleagues and contemporaries, separated by a generation but both intent on timely excavation of their surroundings. Divola, whose Collapsed Structures have a romantic sort of entropy, presents time as a fictive thing. Zaki, in turn presents so much visual information in one image as to render them too real, symbolic of time as an idea of something more then we’ll ever be able to comprehend, as fiction or otherwise. It runs until October 29 at the Angles Gallery in Los Angeles.
