Three media arts exhibitions by artists from the US and across Canada: Brian Kent Gotro's FROM DISTANCE... (Toronto), Laurent Levesque's Adam's Home (Seattle) and Telling Traces by Sarah Shamash and Aisa Jamal (Vancouver). These exhibitions explore ideas of home and abroad, connection and distance, location and displacement, and incorporate video projections, sound installations, and internet art.
Telling Traces subverts the western, colonial concept of the map and mapmaking and speaks to mass human and cultural movements in the past and present while interrogating oral history as a narrative form. Shot aboard a Merchant Marine ship, Adam's Home looks at our perceptions of time and space in relation to the earth, to the continent, to the constructions that dominate nature, and to the windows that frame the landscape. At the heart of FROM DISTANCE… is the unseen person… the figure dwarfed in the seascape and somewhere off-screen. Here identity is obscured. We are left with fragments of lives lived through clues left.
