XPACE: External Space: By nature or by arf (Dog Portraits)


A new video, By nature or by arf (Dog Portraits), by Montreal-based artist Rickie Lea Owens is currently screening at the Learning Zone until January 2013.

Owens uses video diptych, consisting of dog portraits juxtaposed with images of herself imitating the dog’s expression. The video is humourous and engaging interaction that enables the viewer to re-evaluate the role of human dominion over animals.

Come! Sit! Stay! at the LZ to view this second video installment from the documentary series curated by OCAD U Graduate Student, Art Criticism and Curatorial Practice, Jennifer Simaitis.
