Hot Art: David Hoffos’ Unsettling Intimacy

David Hoffos' Winter Kitchen

TO DECEMBER 31 Give yourself the gift of imagination this month at the Museum of Contemporary Canadian Art. Its current exhibition, Scenes from the House Dream, assembles unique works by Alberta-based artist David Hoffos, who employs television screens to reflect ghostly, almost holographic figures into detailed miniature dioramas. Inspiring in their originality, the dreamlike pieces also offer a somewhat eerie measure of the uncanny. Adding to this feeling is the clever setup—the viewer is, in fact, a voyeur, peering through a living room window or the crack of a bedroom door and into the artist’s own mysterious world.
