XPACE: External Space: 1973-1979, Lucille Kim

February 21 is the final day to view Lucille Kim’s stop-motion animation/video performance, 1973 – 1979 at  External Space, hosted in the Learning Zone.

XPACE: External Space. 19973-1979, Lucille Kim

Lucille Kim’s art practice involves drawing, video, performance, sound and photography used in the explorations of self, and her Cambodian family history.

Throughout the video, Kim performs coin therapy on her father, a healing technique that relieves aches and pains, and other illness of the body—connecting her to the pain that her father went through when working in Cambodian rice fields between 1973 to 1979, during the Khmer Rouge regime.

…a coin functions as the drawing medium, with the body as its canvas. This technique not only expands the definition of drawing as a practice, but also critically examines our relationship as artists with the subjects we study and portray through drawing.  Alvis Choi

xpace: External Space: 1st Place by Michelle Homonylo

Michelle Homonylo, 1st Place; Xpace Cultural Centre: External Space

Come to the Learning Zone this summer and check out Xpace Cultural Centre: External Space’s latest exhibition video, 1st Place by Michelle Homonylo.

Homonylo’s usage of Olympic found footage and her performance portraying an Olympic swimmer are carefully constructed using split screens and cut-away techniques, to create juxtaposition between a competitive sporting environment and domestic space.

 Both settings convey the isolating, singular pursuit of excellence within their respective existence

Jon Lockyer

The video’s imagery is modeled after Homonylo’s roots in contemporary photography.

XPACE: External Space presents Lynn Canyon

Lynn Canyon by Canadian artist Adam Waldron-Blain is a video performance placing the artist playing a violin, while taking different positions in the middle of a rushing creek in a North Vancouver park.

The interruptions of sounds of rushing water, wind, birds and a dog with its owner flitting through the static frame, engages and challenges the viewer to watch and hear his violin performance in a powerful and unpredictable space.
