Doppelganger + TEMPLE Doppelganger + TEMPLE

Live Performances by Tasman Richardson
Presented with Sled Island Visual Art + Theatre Junction GRAND

Saturday, June 25, 2016 @ 6PM (Doors at 5PM)
Theatre Junction GRAND – 608 1 St SW

Tickets: $25 (Includes performances by Dawn of Midi, Circuit des Yeux and artist Jeneen Frei Njootli)
Sled Island Passholders get in FREE (Subject to capactiy)

Doppelganger is a live dual projection performance using manually warped time markers in addition to regular cuts, it induces a sensation of doubt and deception, through manipulations in temporal continuity. Sources evolve from mirror reflections in cinema to recording errors in VHS, to complete signal failure and pulsing erratic noise, each layer rending the veils of simulation. In Temple, the performer has replaced the shaman/priest, and the screen/sound has replaced the performer. Pulling from the cultural dictionary of cinematic micro phrases to deliver a ceremonial edit of sigils and signs. In this post-faith, post-flesh world, our spectacular séance will weave recorded media (aka the power of the dead) into a spastic orgy of cut ups.

PORTAL PORTAL

An installation by Sandra Vida

Exhibition: May 19 – June 18, 2016 @ 12-6PM (Closed on May 21, Sundays and Mondays)
Opening Reception: Thursday, May 19, 2016 @ 7-10PM

EMMEDIA – 351 11 Ave SW, 2nd Floor

In Sandra Vida’s most recent video work, Journey, she explored the notion of perseverance through obstacles, and the recuperative power of disrupting the flow of time through repetition and looping images. She invited viewers to empathetically partake in this experience through large-scale projected images. Portal takes these themes one step further in the creation of a scenario in which the viewer literally passes through the video image, projected on a series of walls or veils. The piece explores the fertility of the “liminal space” or threshold, the place of transition: a chance for the viewer to linger between a previous way of structuring time, awareness, even identity, and moving forward into a new or different path.
