Seth, "Dominion," ongoing, mixed-media installation, dimensions variable
Dominion is an elaborate work-in-progress by the cartoonist known as Seth. A model of a Canadian town with some 70 buildings constructed from cardboard boxes and house paint, it reflects the optimism of an earlier idealized era. Curated by Andrew Hunter and circulated by the University of Lethbridge Art Gallery, it is supported by a detailed history and infused with melancholy, ambiguous nostalgia and cynical humour.
