About the SHOW

"ExploWare Beta 0.0" is an animated remix by artist David Hanes made in the same vein as his âAwareâ series in which online images of gallery documentation become the source material for digital manipulations. Hanes revises these representations of cultural objects in anonymous spaces using Photoshop. This version exposes some of his aesthetic influences, as well as his process. The result is a tension between abstraction and representation, an emptied showroom and a bleached-out artwork.
David Hanes, born in 1987 in Toronto, is an artist, curator, and DJ whose expanded sculptural practice examines the architecture of the Internet and the experience of art in the digital age. Exhibiting in both offline and online communities, David lives/works in Berlin, Germany. He is represented by Birch Contemporary Toronto.

About the WAG

Due to our needs that seem to be increasingly handheld, WAG was born on 2009! The Widget Art Gallery is a mini single art gallery room fitting into people's pocket. Every month, the WAG hosts a solo digital art exhibition related to its dynamic site-specific context. So the WAG works both as a sort of kunsthall showing temporary exhibitions and also as museum conserving all the past shows inside an online archive that creates a permanent collection.
