The Helen Pitt Gallery is pleased to present Michael Drebert’s project, Styrofoam Huffer, as part of the 2008 SWARM festival. Drebert departs from his recent practice of “actions” and has returned to material based sculpture to create a large scale installation that challenges notions of usefulness and asks the viewer to question their participatory involvement in social concerns both on a local and global scale.
Michael Drebert is a Vancouver-based artist and graduate of Emily Carr Institute. His work has been shown at the Western Front, the Lobby and Artspeak, among others. He will be attending the University of Victoria in the fall to begin his MFA degree.
