Point de mémoire: les sports d'hiver
Point de mémoire: les sports d'hiver is a mixed-media installation that seeks to investigate technology's effect on the active process of making history. Jacquelyn explores this through a juxtaposition of reconfigured found footage from the 1930's and newly created Super 8 films that were inspired by those archival images. These non-linear short narratives are synchronized and edited in such a way that the stories respond to each other and are intended to be projected onto opposite-facing handmade screens. Both films are united by a single overarching soundtrack created from ambient audio gathered while shooting in Manitoba. Point de mémoire explores the spirit of nostalgia, playfulness, and the “re-creation" of memory and was recently shown at La maison des artistes visuels francophones (MAVF) from Nov. 2009 to Jan. 2010.
Sitka ("net" in Ukrainian) is composed of threads and ruptures into the folds of memory, love, and loss. Body, skin, touch, movement, man and woman, mother and son, memories are awash in a haptic eroticism of film grain. With use of overexposure, vaseline, hand-processing, and flashes of light, this film asks for a close, haptic viewing.
