VARIATIONS | Canadian moving image & sound artists interpret a 1957 poem by Michael Snow
June 23–July 30, 2016
Opening reception: Thursday, June 23 at 5 pm
Artist Talk | Saturday, May 11 at 2pm
Mark Templeton invited Canadian moving-image and sound artists to join him an exploration of nonlinear pasts, returning to a 1957 poem by Canadian artist Michael Snow. Around a silent film portrait of Snow by John Price, the other artists use the poem as a jumping-off point for experiments in sound and image, full of cyclical analog degradation capturing the poems’s fleeting moments, the slightest instant of time sliced in two.
The collection will be released as a DVD and essay on Templeton’s GRAPHICAL RECORDINGS at the opening reception.
Featuring: Evangeline Belzile & Ian William Craig, Stephen Broomer & Stuart Broomer, Kyle Armstrong & Mark Templeton, Dan Browne & Steve Richman, Mani Mazinani, Christine Lucy Latimer, Clint Enns, and John Price, curated by Mark Templeton
