Hanksville = A place of loss, failure, and tragedy, of dreams gone wrong – the empty spaces and tainted, faded relics left behind. Not a ghost town (that traditionally understood remnany of a once-glorious boomtown), but the landscapes and souvenirs of the places and things that never got there.

With Hanksville, artist, writer, and curator Andrew Hunter continues his highly speculative and narrative-based explorations of folly and failure. Commissioned and circulated by the mendel Art Gallery in Saskatoon, Hanksville is a poetic reflection of a decade of wandering through a distinctly modern world of industrial sites, city plans, utopian communities, private spaces, and world expositions. Troubling, and at times surreal, Hanksville is a personal journey into the detritis of projected futures. The exhibition features new works by William Easin and Adriana Kuiper, and the Hunter Family.
