Heaven's Gate is a new exhibition by Italian-born Canadian contemporary artist and film director Marco Brambilla.
Heaven's Gate presents the spectacle of the Hollywood dream factory as a panoramic video collage where we ascend through psychedelic landscapes of looping samples of iconic moments in cinematic history. The work at once celebrates and satirises pop culture, engulfing the viewer in a hyper-saturation of imagery almost impossible to sustain.
