Juxtaposing different “criminals” in society against bloody sexual tableaus, Zac Slams presents Crime and Punishedment, an exhibition of brutal new collages that challenge and subvert conventional attitudes towards gender, sexuality, violence and the law.
Zac Slams is a collage artist and award-winning filmmaker (Best Local Short, Fairy Tales Queer Film Festival 2012) raised in Northern England but currently working in Calgary. As a Women's Studies undergraduate at the University of Calgary, he uses found and stolen images to explore queer and feminist extremes. His work has been exhibited at Art Central, the Globe Cinema, the Plaza Theatre, the EPCOR Centre, and the Particle + Wave Festival of Media Arts.
