The Model presents Minor Pieces, a solo exhibition by Dutch artist Guido van der Werve featuring two film works and a series of related photographs.

The title of the exhibition is a reference to the game of chess which plays a key role in one of van der Werve’s film presented at the gallery. In Nummer twaalf, variations on a theme: The King’s Gambit accepted, the number of stars in the sky and why a piano can’t be tuned or waiting for an earthquake, the artist considers the concept of infinity by interweaving chess, music, the mathematics of nature and notions of the sublime.

The exhibition will also include Nummer zes: Steinway grand piano, wake me up to go to sleep, and all the colors of the rainbow. In the film, the artist who is also a composer and classically trained pianist, sets out the history of the Steinway piano, subsequently enacting his desire to locate himself within its privilege and romantic grandiosity.

Exhibition curated by Cate Rimmer, in association with the Charles H. Scott Gallery and Emily Carr University.
