Nate McLeod’s PERPETUAL PASSAGE invites viewers into an immersive space – a space that draws one in and seems to infinitely stretch the Project Room in both directions. As the viewer moves through the space the work appears to transform, creating a dialogue between artwork, exhibition space, and viewer. Expanding upon Théophile Gautier’s concept of “l’art pour l’art” (translated as “art for art’s sake”), the artwork does not provide extraneous information and the viewer is left to consider this three-way dialogue and the experience of viewing the artwork.
NATE MCLEOD is an interdisciplinary artist, arts administrator, and Editor of Fresh Bread Daily, an arts & culture publication and website dedicated to the arts scene in Calgary and beyond. He holds a BFA from the Alberta College of Art & Design.
