Place:BURNET GALLERY AT CHAMBERS HOTEL
Event: Strange Victory
When: OCTOBER 02, 09 | 6:00 - 9:00pm
Info: Artist Matthew Bakkom has shown his work in exhibitions all over the world, including New York, Paris, Berlin and Dublin, but his newest solo exhibition at the Burnet Gallery in Chambers hotel on Hennepin Avenue has special significance for this Minneapolis native.
“Having a show on Hennepin Avenue is an aspirational achievement for me,” explained Bakkom. “Hennepin Avenue has such history. It’s a landmark for the city that holds so many personal memories for me and public memories for all of us. Having a show here somehow connects you to all of that.”And making connections seems to be a recurring theme for Bakkom’s latest solo exhibition, “Strange Victory.” In the show Bakkom uses a scanner as an artistic medium to create connections between the artist and the audience, through time and space, the seen and the unseen.
