The Roving Iconist

The Roving Iconist

Bogdan Luca

From June 22nd to July 17th
Opening June 24th, 2011 from 7-10pm

The Roving Iconist experiences the world as a visual range where images of conflict, disaster, spectacle and entertainment become the basis of personal mythologies. If language shapes our thoughts and architecture disciplines our bodies, then images provide a real space of alternative storytelling, where we can create the world we need or desire. In this space of possibility, the Iconist encounters figures that interact with structures of movement which are usually only experienced as time intervals between destinations: bridge, tunnel, railroad. These run-ins produce yet more images. Bogdan Luca is a recent graduate from the Master of Visual Studies program at the University of Toronto. The Roving Iconist marks his second solo exhibition with LE Gallery.
