Keith Langergraber: Theatre of the Exploding Sun
Contributors: Liz Wylie, Ryan Doherty, Charlotte Townsend-Gault and Peter Morin

This first monograph on the cinematic work of Keith Langergraber focuses on his three-part film entitled Time Traveler Trilogy. The first film, The Theatre of the Exploding Sun, centres around the artist’s alter ego Eton Corrasable making a science fiction fan film that transports him to Robert Smithson’s Spiral Jetty on Great Salt Lake in Utah. In the second film Eton shoots a fan film based on the novel and film by Andrei Tarkovsky, Solaris. The third film explores Dr Who fandom and Robert Smithson’s never realized Glass Island project. Langergraber’s work functions on several levels at any given point of engagement: sometimes spoofing the forms it imitates, in other ways, paying homage, both to past artists and achievements in science fiction. Keith Langergraber has exhibited extensively in solo and group shows throughout Canada, the United States, and Asia since 1995. He lives and works in Vancouver.
