Artist Statement

Scenario City

 

Scenario City is an archive of archetypal parts. Scale and materiality are compromised, inverted, and confused to re-figure the relative magnitudes between elements.

 

Speculative Fiction, Feburary-March 2016

Gertler combines fragments and archival photographs with architectural renderings to approximate a territory's political context, customs and crises. His narrative becomes an investigation of the tectonic and the social order. His interest in cycles of revisionist history leads to the title Speculative Fiction. Architectural studies and typology play a part in building these fantasies.

Project Space: Supralith, February-March 2016

Insallation: Architectural Structure with fiberglass moulds and paint

An installation of cantilevered slabs is populated by fiberglass moulds representing the social structure. It is an investigation into the notions of displacement and the other. The work is populated by architecturally heterogeneous figures that cast a gaze over the desert landscape surrounding the sculpture.
