Off Route 2: solo exhibition at PavedArts (Saskatoon)

  • Paved Arts 424 20 St W Saskatoon, SK, S7M 0X4 Canada (map)

September 12-October 17, 2014
Public Reception: Friday, September 12th @ 8:00.

Off Route 2 is a digital transfer of a 35mm film loop portraying the anticlimactic aftermath of a car crash accompanied by 2 flat screen monitors presenting details of the scene itself and of the film crew waiting patiently between takes. This installation seeks to subvert conventional cinematic portrayals of trauma and tragedy through focusing on moments rarely portrayed on screen while simultaneously revealing the artificial apparatus of cinematic construction. In so doing, it explores the physical reality of creating a fictional reality.

***ONE NIGHT ONLY*** Friday September 12th @ 7:00
Amanda Dawn Christie will perform the multi-media performance piece “Requiem for Radio: Pulse Decay”
