Binocular View starts with the supposed act of bird watching but quickly devolves as Kris Lindskoog presents an imagined, fragmented interior of a cabin or loner's retreat. Seen are a precarious viewing perch, various props, drawings, furniture, collections and artifacts. Lindskoog produces the works through the filter of the imagined inhabitant’s mind, appearing to present and distort an outlook on the world, where the uselessness of broken binoculars serves as a metaphor. Lindskoog weaves a narrative, but doesn't quite tell the story.
Kris Lindskoog is an artist living and working in Calgary, Alberta. Lindskoog uses an open-media approach to his work, which includes drawing, sculpture, installation and collecting. He has exhibited locally, nationally and internationally.
