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.

On at the Learning Zone until June 18th and available online.
