JOURNEY

EMMEDIA presents

Journey
by Sandra Vida

October 24 – November 1, 2014 @ 12-6PM (excluding Mondays and Sundays)

Opening Reception: Friday, October 24, 2014 @ 7-9PM

Check out Mireille Perron’s essay on the exhibition here: www.issuu.com

This new projected video installation features as a central motif, the image of a white horse approaching the camera in an endless loop.  Overlaid on this image are constantly shifting layers of imagery gleaned from the artist’s photographs, paintings and drawings, as well as excerpts from her previous video works. The dream-like mood is enhanced by the natural sounds of wind and water, and an evocative violin tune. Creating a contemplative and immersive space, the interplay of images and sound may call up the viewer’s own dreams and reflections.

Passages: A Panel Discussion will be hosted in conjunction with Journey. For more information, go to: www.emmedia.ca
