Amanda Dawn Christie: Land Lost, Galerie d’art Louise et Reuben Cohen, Moncton, NB, 2014, 10.00CAD
Purchase by contacting: mirebour (at) gmail (dot) com
A bilingual catalogue of the exhibition, containing full colour reproductions and four essays written by Mireille Bourgeois, Scott Birdwise, Pip Chodorov, and Amanda Dawn Christie, was launched by the Galerie d’art Louise et Reuben Cohen on November 19, 2014 during the FICFA (Festival international du cinéma francophone en Acadie).
Amanda Dawn Christie: Land Lost was a solo exhibition that attempted a modest lineage of Christie’s art practice: from experimental film, to performance, through to photography and installation. The exhibit looked at the influence of spectacle and performance found in Christie’s work, the implications of nature in the artist’s films, and the personal sometimes self-deprecating world of DIY technology. Here, Land Lost means to negotiate between one’s own site-specific state and the non-narrative space of memory and the mind.
Permanent Revolution: Istvan Kantor, 2014, 26.00 CAD
Purchase HERE: http://artmetropole.com/shop/11019
Permanent Revolution: Istvan Kantor is an artist monograph published by The Kantor Collective (Linda Feesey, Mireille Bourgeois, Istvan Kantor), and is funded by the Canada Council for the Arts.
Kantor’s work as a media artist dates back to the late 70s in Montreal where he began producing videos. Kantor was a new immigrant, only recently arriving from Budapest via Paris, and interested in the new developments of current artistic expression where video was the new form to be explored. His media art can be described as technology based media art, including video, interactive robotic machinery, kinetic sculpture, transmission machine, extended body, and hyper-noise.
Editor: Linda Feesey and Mireille Bourgeois, includes writers: Mike Hoolboom, Lewis Kaye, Shannon Bell, Istvan Kantor, Eszter Jagica, Kristine Stiles, and David Liss.
