"She arrived in Canada on the first plane of refugees after the CIA-backed assassination of Chile’s democratically elected Salvador Allende. This primal wound and displacement lies at the heart of Duran’s making, whether it means lifting a camera to see a rainy street, a mountain or the face of her young boy as if she’d never seen before, or taking aim at the dictator who ruled Chile in the years of her maturity. Roughly speaking, her work may be divided into three central areas of interest, the first is an extension of the home movie, looking at the birth of her first born, or her own childhood. The second looks at Chile under the rule of Pinochet’s dictatorship. While the third is more broadly interested in questions of the archive and historical records and technologies. Hegel wrote: History is what man does with death. But there is a last flicker before the end, call it magic hour, the epitaph, the closing song, and the fragile beauty of this passing draws this artist toward it again and again. ”
Franci Duran: Poetry of Exile by Mike Hoolboom

Francisca Duran is an experimental media artist based in Toronto, Canada. Born in Santiago, Chile in 1967, Duran came to Canada as a refugee following the 1973 military coup that ousted elected president Salvador Allende. This event – the experience of exile and its reckoning – is integral to her artistic practice. Duran’s moving image work takes a critical view of social, political and cultural issues through the aperture of the archive, both familial and public. Combining digital and analogue media, her work explores the intersection points of memory, history, politics and technology. She has exhibited nationally and internationally in numerous film festivals, and group screenings, including HotDocs, DOK Leipzig, London International Film Festival, Images Festival, Ann Arbor Film Festival, Toronto International Film Festival and the John Hansard Gallery and Ben Russell Gallery. Her practice has been supported by research and production grants from the Canada Council for the Arts, the Ontario Arts Council, and the Toronto Arts Council.

Duran holds an MFA in Film Production from York University and a BAH from Queen’s University, and continues her professional development at artist-run centres such as the Liaison of Independent Filmmakers of Toronto (LIFT), Toronto Animated Image Society (TAIS) and Gallery 44. In addition to her art practice, Duran has worked as a graphic designer, as adjunct university and college faculty, and as an arts administrator.

In a Present Distance ­ A First Retrospective of films by Tracy German

Friday, November 17th, 2017 - 8:00pm (doors open at 7:30pm)
CineCycle, 129 Spadina Ave. Toronto
Free event - PWYC - Suggested Donation $6


Tracy German is a Toronto based Indigenous filmmaker, artist and educator. Over the past twenty years Tracy has created a variety of film, video and mixed media works. In 2006, Tracy German completed the acclaimed “In A Present Distance…” a 27min. experimental video, made over eight‐years from 16mm and super 8mm collected images. It is a mesmerizing portrait of motherhood framed around a train trip to Quebec City, in which fragments of a woman’s life emerge and speak subtly and sublimely to the journey of life: of grieving and loss, of happiness and sadness as well as the joyful and reverent gestures of living. As well Tracy German has completed eight short 16mm experimental films and videos the most notable of these – “A Private Patch Of Blue” (1998), exhibited at over 40 film festivals, winning the Dunn Hayes Memorial award at the Onion City film festival in Chicago 1998.

Her work is often situated within the “Escarpment School” an approach to filmmaking that at it’s core has a deep “desire for understanding through physical exploration and encounter with landscape…with critical self-reflection and patient, poetic lensing …in a diary or travelogue format... the filtering of documentary material through individual experience, the looming presence of (North) America, and a process-based, formalist approach to nonfiction.” 1

Tracy German holds an M.F.A. from York University in film production and a Media Arts diploma from Sheridan College where she teaches p/t in the BFTV program. Tracy German is also the show runner (Producer/Director/Writer) for Wild Archaeology a 13x30 min. documentary tv series on APTN that tells the deep history of Indigenous inhabitation of the Canadian continent, now in it’s second season of production (CMF/APTN). www.WildArchaeology.com

To be screened in sections, with discussion interwoven between.

Izabella Pruska-Oldenhof / Light Magic / 3min / 16mm / Colour /Sound / 2001
Light Magic” uses one of the earliest photographic processes, discovered at the birth of the photographic medium: the photogram. This technique combines science and art in order to record the process of transformation. Images created through this technique are traces of light that pass through each object, leaving their mark on the film surface. Photograms bring both the maker and the viewer closer to the object, thus revealing its essence - that neither the naked eye nor the camera lens could see. Sound for this film was composed by Greg Boa.

Tall Women's Printed Chief Western Pretty Rain Parasols Boot
“Light Magic” was one of the fifteen films commissioned by the Liaison of Independent Filmmakers of Toronto on the occasion of its 20th anniversary. The subject and the aesthetic of this film are a response to the statement “Self & Celluloid: The Future.”

Kelly Egan / finger petals / 4minutes / 16mm / Colour / Sound / 2002
Egan’s first film and her first experiment in translating written text/language into an aural object. finger petals is a handmade cameraless film which uses collage techniques to sculpt the images and sound. The visual composition was made by meticulously cutting, shaping and collaging flowers onto the filmstrip. The sound treatment is created by pasting e.e. cummings’ poem “somewhere i have never travelled, gladly beyond,” the letters themselves forming the audio as their graphic shape is translated into sound.


Kelly Egan / Bodies of Knowledge / 5.5min / 16mm / Colour / Sound / 2003
Egan’s first (and one of very few) shot film. Bodies Of Knowledge bears a loose metrical form; its textured sepia-toned imagery of nudes is accompanied by percussive sound created by the collage of names placed directly onto the optical soundtrack area. The film explores the ability of the camera to capture the personal relationship between filmmaker and different subjects.

Izabella Pruska-Oldenhof /her carnal longings / 8.5 min / 16mm /Colour / Sound / 2003
“her carnal longings” is a meditation on physicality of the human body and of the film medium at a time when the futures of both are in question. Using the “emulsion lift” technique on 16mm film, sections of emulsion were lifted off, torn up or smudged, and then re-adhered. In combination with digital video technology, the filmmaker creates an intricate analogue/digital weave which explores both the body’s and the film’s surface. The film emulsion wrinkles, rips and dissolves - reminding us that it, like human flesh, is fragile and perishable. Colin Clark composed the music for this film. Colin relied on percussive approach in his composition to convey the idea of touching and proximity.


Kelly Egan / c: won eyed jail / 4.5 min / 35mm / Colour / Sound / 2005
c: won eyed jail explores experimental narratives and structural form by considering the potential of a “feminine narrative forms” through the constriuction of the film as a quilt. Like a quilt, this film is created by collecting and re-presenting found materials, editing based on colour and form as if the filmstrips (35mm motion picture positive, 35mm still negative and 16mm motion picture positive) were different fabrics. The result is almost like a collage unfolding and accumulating in real time before your very eyes.

Parasols Tall Printed Rain Boot Women's Chief Pretty Western
Izabella Pruska-Oldenhof / Fugitive L(i)ght / 9 min / 16mm / colour / Sound / 2005
This film explores the morph-like quality of the Serpentine Dance and its intricate play on the visible and the invisible, which extends to the larger context and legacy its originator, the American-born Loïe Fuller. “fugitive l(i)ght” is composed of reworked found footage, originally captured by Thomas Edison and the Lumiére brothers, of various renditions and imitations of Fuller's Serpentine performances, where glimmers of her presence slip into the film by means of the artist's absence; both Fuller's and my momentary suspensions through my use of chance operation. The music for this film was composed by Toronto based composer Colin Clark who reworked various LP recordings of Wagner’s “Die Walküre,” the music that often accompanied Fuller’s Serpentine performances.


Font Màgica (2015) 6.5min
A memory trace of a unique moment near Montjuïc Mountain in Barcelona rendered palpable. Font Màgica continues my ongoing interest in the protocinematic performances and light technologies used by artists at the turn of the 20th century. Music for Font Màgica was composed by Colin Clark, Toronto-based composer and software developer, with the original piano composition by Fryderyk Chopin, Prelude Op. 28, No. 15 “Raindrop,” and sounds courtesy of Stanford Solar Center (Sun sounds) and of NASA, Cassini-Huygens mission (radio emissions from Saturn).

Kelly Egan / Ransom Notes / 4 min / 35mm /Colour / Sound / 2011
“We have your …” The ransom note, in our collective imagination, is an interesting entry point to the politics of ownership, freedom and exchange alue, made by transforming mass media (newspapers) content into a personal message – the re-appropriation of language and meaning through the act of collage. Ransom Notes explores this strange tension as a means of sorting out the filmmaker’s experience of the hijacking of her city during the Toronto G20 Summit and subsequent riots of June 2010. The film combines new and old media (film, newsprint, print-outs of twitter feeds), exploring social mobilization through mass media, culminating through the structure of a “waltz.” The soundtrack of the film is composed by placing letters, words and sentences directly on the optical soundtrack – in a sense the projector is “reading” the words, and the sound that you hear is the language produced by the cinematic machine. 


Boot Arctic Women's Black MuckBoots Weekend Maroon R5xtAwYw Izabella Pruska-Oldenhof / Echo / 9 min / Colour / Sound / 2007
“Echo” recalls childhood and the native home of the filmmaker through image, song and text. This self-portrait hints at the fragments, the pieces, the painful and repressed shards that the self contains, and through which it strives to piece together and illuminate its mysterious gaps.

Kelly Egan / Athyrium Filix-Femina / 4 min / Colour / Sound / 2016
The second in a series of “quilt films” that pay homage to the work of pioneering female artists, Athyrium filix-femina reimagines Anna Atkins’ founding work in photography as a moving image. In 1843, Anna Atkins published the first book of photography, Photographs of British Algae: Cyanotype Impressions, an exploration of regional botany that classified different kinds of algae using direct prints of the plants. The cyanotype process was a relatively short-lived as a dominant form of photography, however, it found refuge in the domestic sphere where it was used to decorate fabric for pillows, drapes and clothing. By combining filmmaking and quilting, this film extends from the “domestication” of this photographic art by exploring experimental narrative and structural forms through the use of traditional “women’s work.”

“Often combining a careful concern with the apparatus and a high degree of formal rigour with thoughtful attention to social reality and history, Kennedy’s films examine the interpenetration of a kind of phenomenology – how the things of the world appear to consciousness – with the material possibilities of film (multiple exposures, hand processing, found footage, multi-frame presentations).” – Scott Birdwise, Canadian Film Institute

“Chris Kennedy is an undervalued filmmaker in the experimental world, in part because, unlike so many others who stake out a particular plot of ground and till it for all it’s worth, he is a bit of a conceptual vagabond. A lot of his films are quite different from one another in their surface effects, but at their core they share certain basic questions, in particular the relationship between organized vision and the chaos of the sensory world. That is, how do schemas and patterns determine what we are able to see?” – Michael Sicinski

Beyond representation: queer embodiment and the feeling of queerness by Alize Zorlutuna

1411 Dufferin St. Suite C – Pix Film Productions- FREE event
Limited seating, arrive early

In this presentation Alize will be sharing recent work that attempts to articulate the embodied experience of trans-cultural queerness: the Feeling of queerness, rather than its representation.

Alize Zorlutuna is a Turkish-Canadian; Toronto based media artist and writer who employ a diverse range of media in her practice. Working in new media, sculpture, performance, audio and video, her work draws upon her experience as an individual living between two cultures. Negotiating multiple perspectives simultaneously, this embodied liminality informs her creative practice; manifesting in explorations of interstices. The desire to activate interstices where differing perspectives, emotions, and physical entities meet, and the meanings created in those meetings rests at the heart of her work. Alize graduated with distinction from the Sculpture and Installation Program at OCAD University, where she won multiple awards. She also has an honors degree in International Development Studies from Dalhousie University. Alize has shown work at Interaccess, Toronto Free Gallery and Xpace as well as having participated in Nuit Blanche.

The direct approach allows the group to create quirky and often outrageous images that examine, with humour, the immigrant experiences of displacement, transition and transformation.

Nahúm Flores, Erik Jerezano, and Ilyana Martínez are Z’otz* Collective, formed in Toronto in 2004. The group meets weekly to collaborate on multi-media works, which include drawing, painting, collage, sculpture, and site–specific drawing installations.

Women's Western Tall Chief Pretty Rain Parasols Boot Printed
The program Ráfagas Canadienses presents a fragmented journal inside the diversity of contemporary video art production in Canada. These shorts cross the boundaries between architecture, video installation, actions, and self-portraits, including in some of the works a silent communication. As the program was originally intended for a Spanish speaking audience it is immersive in the aesthetical form, the sound and the performances. These works also present repetitive moments, intimate stories. The space were they are placed could be any, including an internal space, the architectural surroundings, the city lines, which could be Toronto, Montreal, or any other city, like a private room, or the space for their own sexuality, the subtle violence and the sexuality of the other.

Many Deaths curated by Juana Awad

Many Deaths is a program of three short -and medium-length single channel installations by Berlin-based artists, brought together to explore some of our tactics and escape routes when confronted with death - from our alienated dealings with bodily decay, to the need to elevate our pain, to our obsession with the killing of unwanted symbols and the resurrection of desired power sings. With Many Deaths, three formally divergent works offer us a glimpse into some of our strategies to deal with the ever-present reality of our physical and political short existence. jSr Propet Sneaker Women's White Washable Walker White 6a81Rqw

DRAWING THE SILENCE(D)
As a professional artist using mainly drawing as a medium, my work aims to tell stories, mostly of what is not revealed to the eye but lives within our everyday reality. Specially those emotions, events and situations that are been kept hidden or secret because of social powers, government censorship and cultural normativity. In my art I explore secrecy, silence and how drawing may become a tool for revealing, and therefore, making the audience and the artist aware. In this sense, I am committed to an art that is sensitive and critical, that plays with different layers of complexity, but remains accessible and open to all audiences.

As a medium, drawing is full of potentiality for connectedness and universality. Drawing is immediate, it is fast, it is part of our everyday life and we have all had an experience of drawing, if only as children. Drawing helps us to express our feelings, our ideas, our plans, but also to document our past and build our dreams. It is because of its simplicity that I believe that drawing has the power to reveal the unseen, to express deep complexities and to speak the silences. As contradictory as it may sound, I know that drawing has the power to visibilize the invisible.

In this presentation I would be sharing the process of research, creation and exhibition of one of my my most recent pieces, Los Fantasmas. This hand-drawn series reveals the silenced genocide committed by Franco fascist troops against civilians and left-wing organizers in Spain and I would use it as a concrete example to discuss the methodologies, challenges and rewards of working with collective traumas and secrets.
After the presentation and discussion, there will be drawing materials ready for you to work on a silence(d) project of your choice and I will be there to support you through it, if needed.

: Artist talk Creative Conversation Series FREE

From linear to interactive – creative and technical challenges on sound design and media crossover.
In this talk I’d like to share the process of transition between film and video games I experienced, the differences in language, production approach and team collaboration. The concepts and examples, even when they come from mainstream industries can be translated and adapted to the work of independent artist who want to express through technology and interactivity using games or any other form of interactive media.

EXQUISITE CORPSE VIDEO PROJECT (ECVP) VOLUME 4 - PORN / POLITICS (2014, 60min)
Tall Western Chief Boot Rain Parasols Printed Pretty Women's

The Exquisite Corpse Video Project (ECVP) is a unique video collaboration among artists from various parts of the world, inspired by the Surrealist creation method, the "Exquisite Corpse". Using the semi-blind, sequential method of the surrealists' game, ECVP participants create video art in response to the final seconds of the previous member's work. Each member is asked to incorporate these seconds into their piece, creating transitions as they please, until everyone's vision is threaded together into an instigating final "corpse." Rather than providing a unitary linear narrative, in the project each individual artist interrogates — permeated by the diverse cultural backgrounds — a number of genres, tendencies and strategies, engaging in performative, documental, conceptual and poetic modes of representation, utilizing the characteristics of participatory platforms and new communication technology. The project is coordinated by the Brazilian artist Kika Nicolela since 2008 and has had the participation of over 80 international artists so far, divided in 4 volumes and several videos. The new instalment of the project, ECVP Volume 4, proposes the theme Porn/Politics as a frame for the creation of the videos. https://exquisitecorpsevideoproject.wordpress.com
Kika Nicolela will be present at the screening
