Behind These Strange Sensations are Hidden Structures

Max Lester

InterAccess is pleased to present a solo exhibition by Max Lester, the recipient of the 2020 InterAccess Media Arts Prize. For over twenty years this award has been granted annually to a graduating Integrated Media student at OCAD University whose work exhibits excellence and innovation in new media practice.

Behind These Strange Sensations are Hidden Structures traces tangled lines through city streets and cyberspace, meditating on power, affect, intention, and reason. In this exhibition, large sculptures and assemblages made of building materials, found objects, video sequences, and printed image works layer meaning and material to consider the spatial consequences of power and ideology while tending to the virtual entanglements that drive us.

ABOUT THE ARTIST

Max Lester is an artist born and based in Tkaronto. These days, Max is preoccupied by the stickiness of affect, the ways in which power is manifested in built environments, and the use and failure of language to describe abstract experiences and sensations. Max received his BFA in Integrated Media at OCAD University.
