Gareth Moore

Gareth Moore was born 1975 in Matsqui, Canada. He studied at the Ontario College of Art and Design, Toronto (1999–2000), and the Emily Carr Institute, Vancouver (2001–2004). He currently lives and works in Berlin, Germany. Moore’s work has been exhibited nationally and internationally and was chosen for the Tate Modern collection in 2009.

Throughout his journeys, Gareth Moore collects traces of his physical path, his thinking and his actions. These traces, which form the core of the mythology inside Moore’s oeuvre, each carry a hidden story. The objects he assembles seem subversive by nature as they refuse to be objects by themselves, instead becoming a crucial part of the open narrative Moore creates.

For his statement at PAC, Moore is bringing together some older pieces with completely new works that continuously develop the open narrative of his art.
