BETWEEN HERE AND THERE

THU, MAY 10 / 7 pm
Curated by Leslie Supnet
FREE ADMISSION

Between Here and There showcases experimental works from Asian-Canadian artists dealing with physical and ethereal landscapes, places and spaces, revealing the beauty in structure, both natural and man-made. With a focus on the everyday, these artists foreground what is familiar in such a way for the viewer to look at the tangible world in a different light, mediated by personal history and memory.

Leslie Supnet is an artist whose drawing, animated and film work aims to represent sincerity, lived experience, and the multiplicity of human emotion. Her moving image works have screened at the International Short Film Festival Oberhausen, European Media Art Festival, Images Festival, International Film Festival Rotterdam, and Image Forum Festival.

Pompidoleum, dir.Ryan Takatsu, 1978, Canada, 6.37 min.
Architectural structures see new forms and colour.

Lungful Lustre, dir.Becky Ip, 2009, Canada, 2.55 min.
Alongside images of maneuvered metal, the filmmaker’s father recalls the grandmother she never knew and the consequences of tarnish at the family’s Hong Kong metal factory, pointing to the promise and limitations of magnetism, manufacture, memory, and the body.

Coming + Going, dir. Larissa Fan, 2005, Canada, 3 min.
A portrait of the energy of urban life in split-screen. Coming + Going was shot on one roll of regular 8 film, with all editing and split-screen effects created in-camera.

The Dreaming House, dir. Keith Lock, 2005, Canada, 6 min.
The filmmaker, his father and his youngest child walk past the house in Chinatown where the filmmaker’s father was born, triggering a sublime moment.

All That Rises, dir. Daïchi Saïto, 2007, Canada, 7 min.
Juxtaposition of seeing and sounding, sky and stone and all that’s in between. A short walk in an alley way, to hear vision sounding images, blessed with light and darkness.

Awash, dir. Naoka Sasaki, 2007, Canada, 10 min.
Awash is a song for the mortal, depicted through images of, within and around water.

Block B, dir. Christopher Chong Chan Fui, 2008, Canada, 20 min.
A building becomes a living painting. The concrete homes and contradicting soundscapes frame the lives of an expatriate Indian community in Malaysia.
