Malevolent multiples

Which twin is the evil one?

Regina’s Mackenzie Art Gallery is featuring My Evil Twin until Jan. 24, 2010, the third and final exhibition of the MacKenzie’s Mirror Series. The exhibit features the work of four artists: Janieta Eyre and Kristan Horton from Toronto, Maria Hupfield from Vancouver and Julian Rosefeldt from Berlin, Germany. Timothy Long, head curator at the Mackenzie had this to say on the website: “Of course, apart from diaper bills, no-one considers twins to be a harbinger of evil today. Nevertheless, the device of the ‘evil twin’ continues to pop up in popular culture pairings such as Austin Powers and Dr. Evil, Battlestar Galactica’s Boomer and Athena, and The Simpsons’ Bart and Hugo to name a few.” A Hugo reference? We’re so there.
