Mark Moore Fine Art is pleased to make available JACKPOT (2009), one of Daniel Canogar’s most important major works for the first time.
JACKPOT consists of a collaged panel formed by broken fragments of slot machines brings to mind the stained-glass windows of cathedrals. A projection back-lights the panel with flashing lights that recall those used to entice people to play on the slot machines. The piece looks at our fascination with media screens, the extolling of money as the new religion of late capitalism, and indirectly alludes to the financial system as a game.
