Forensics: Art Investigates Information

Disruption rules during this fall’s Canadian Art Encounters series, as three globally acclaimed artists talk about their groundbreaking work and our changing relationship with information.

Janice Kerbel is internationally renowned for her playful and inventive use of existing systems of information to create what she terms “strategies of deception.” Her work takes the form of elaborate instructions, theatrical and radio plays, detective stories, maps and scientific diagrams, all of which turn familiar narrative formats into new and fantastical realities. From producing an exhaustively researched manual for robbing a branch of a London Bank for Bank Job in 1999 to her “play for stage lights” as the sole means to present a dramatic narrative, Kerbel will have you wondering what is blank, what is missing and what needs to be filled in.

Kerbel was born in Toronto, and lives and works in London, UK, where she also teaches at Goldsmiths College. She has exhibited internationally, and is currently nominated for the 2015 Turner Prize.
