LONG ARMS VS. OILY FINGERS 1
JUNE 10, 2015

*Left: Annotation (Long Arms) – Valerie LeBlanc, 2013
This image comes from a series of performances in an empty tennis court near my home in Sydney, Australia, 2013. While enrolled at the Sydney College of the Arts, University of Sydney in a doctorate program (Philosophy in the Visual Arts), I found this pair of arms in a trash pile on the street. As I say, they spoke to me and I took them on to express a mood. In the video Annotation, the zombie-like creature born of the process wishes to address issues of history and it consequences. In the Long Arms photo series, the figure posits the question, “what can one individual do?”

*Right: Hands Dripping in Oil – Daniel Dugas, 2011
Hands Dripping in Oil, was a series of photographs that I took in 2011 surrounding OIL, a curated program of short videos exploring the relationship we have with crude oil. The images were used to create the poster for the event I curated through EMMEDIA, Calgary. The program was screened at EM on July 12, 2011, the one-year anniversary of the capping of the BP well in the Gulf of Mexico.
This program presents works dealing with issues of environment, power and representation; works that speak about our world. These videographers and filmmakers are sometimes witnesses, sometimes activists, and often, the canaries in mine shafts. They each offer a personal point of view, an observation, acknowledgement of where we are now and where we might be going.
