XPACE: External Space: After Darkness, Manuela Morales

Manuela Morales video, After Darkness, is currently on view at XPACE’s External Space gallery located in OCAD U Library Services: Learning Zone.

After Darkness, is a video that touches on the emotional aftermath of sexual violence that occurred between two family members.

Morales uses a two-channel video, juxtaposing family emails with landscape. Capturing the tranquility of the landscape with audio bytes of birds, footsteps, and wind blowing through grass with email correspondence between family members. The back and forth online communication reveals to the audience the intricacies and uncertainties faced by the family as they work together and offer support.

The text in After Darkness creates a nuanced and honest conversation about the effects of sexual assault on a personal and collective level….Morgan Sears William

On until April 4

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
