Once Near Water

Vera Frenkel (Toronto)
September 10 – 24, 2010 @ 10-5PM (Monday to Saturday)
Opening Reception: September 10 @ 7PM
EMMEDIA Screening Room

EMMEDIA is honoured to be presenting the work of renowned Canadian multidisciplinary artist Vera Frenkel, a project that carries powerful resonances to the dissonance of Calgary’s urban and natural landscape. Once Near Water: Notes from the Scaffolding Archive is a work about a city cut off from its lake, and in trouble: where scaffolding serves as metaphor for both aspiration and loss. The opening launch of this work coincides with the release of our new CRASH! anthology of critical texts.

Vera Frenkel is one of Canada’s most renowned multidisciplinary artists, respected both internationally and at home. Her installations, videotapes, performances and new media projects address the forces at work in human migration, the learning and unlearning of cultural memory, and the ever-increasing bureaucratization of experience.
