Paul de Guzman

Paul de Guzman

April 23-July 9, 2013
Tommy Douglas Library

For the past few years, Paul de Guzman’s artistic practice has been characterized by a conceptual and linguistic approach toward the institutional nature of architecture through the creation of transient and temporary structures using linguistic and architectural strategies. This series of works, titled Invisible Cities, uses the structure of the book to create sculptures that reference architectural plans and drawings. By carefully slicing through the pages of art books, de Guzman creates multi-layered constructions, transforming the nature, purpose, and function of the book.

This is the first in a series of Outreach Exhibitions organized by the Burnaby Art Gallery focusing on artist books related to maps and topography.
