HEIDI PHILLIPS: MYSTERIES OF LIGHT

FRI, JUL 29 / 7 pm
Introduced by Heidi Phillips

Heidi Phillips sifts and searches through old films and found footage, lifting imagery and sound to recycle into her own layered and loosely structured narrative works. Increasingly, she is using old technology such as radios and television sets as sculptural objects within the space. Her use of moving images has progressed into a more tactile approach with the physicality of the film medium itself. These found-footage and hand-processed films entice the viewer into an alternate reality where sailboats have character and disembodied arms have hope. The program will conclude with the premiere of Phillips’ latest film series based on 8mm found footage bought from “Klass ‘A’ Auctions” in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan.

ACKNOWLEDGMENT
