Diptychs: House Party, an Online Discussion
Dunlop Art Gallery presents Diptychs: House Party, an online discussion
Tuesday, February 15, 7:00 PM CST / 8:00 PM EST
Online – Dunlop Art Gallery, YouTube Live
Pre-registration not required.
Join Johanna Householder, Judith Price, seth cardinal dodginghorse, Jeanne Randolph, and Anne Bourne in conversation as they discuss their new project, Diptychs. Recorded over a series of ZOOM calls between Pacific time (UTC -7) and Eastern time (UTC -4), Diptychs attempts to restore touch and peripheral vision to a world condensed into a 2880 x 1800 slab of metal and electrons. The crude imprecision of the technologies through which we now communicate flattens geographies and obliterates time zones. It also subtly renders affect ineffective, demanding that we tunnel our visions.
Johanna Householder works at the intersection of popular and unpopular culture, making performance art, audio, video, film and choreography. Her interest in how ideas move through bodies has led her often collaborative practice. She has performed across Canada and at international venues for 40 years. One of the founders of the 7a*11d International Festival of Performance Art, she co-edited two books with Tanya Mars: Caught in the Act: an anthology of performance art by Canadian women (2004), and More Caught in the Act (2016). Her current work concerns the vexations of the anthropocene. She has taken refuge in T:Karonto on Treaty 13 territory.
Judith Price combines a 30+ year transdisciplinary art practice with a background in modern dance. Her body of work includes performances, video, video installation, site-specific installations and short films. Her performances include site-specific street actions, interventions, and collaborative and durational works, and her solo performances in galleries and festival events incorporate still images, video projections, and sculpture, merging performance and video installation. She is a founding member of the Open Action performance collective. Price lives in Victoria, BC, and is retired from teaching post-secondary courses in time-based art. Judith is an uninvited guest on the Lekwungen/Esquimalt, Songhees and WSÁNEĆ territory.
seth cardinal dodginghorse is an experimental musician, cultural researcher, and multidisciplinary artist working within performance, printmaking, installation, sound and video. They grew up eating dirt and exploring the forest on their family’s ancestral land on the Tsuu’tina nation. In 2014 their family was forcibly removed from their homes and land for the construction of the South West Calgary Ring Road. Their work explores their family’s history and experiences of displacement.
Jeanne Randolph writes, performs and takes photographs alluding to her fascination with mass spectator sports such as boxing, American Football, car racing and the dead white men’s philosophical tradition, as well as psychoanalytic theory, advertising, ancient history, consumerism and contemporary Canadian art.
Anne Bourne composer, sound artist, writer, is seasoned in intermedia performance and recording; improvises emergent streams of cello and voice; composes sonic video shorts from field recordings. In contemporary voice context, Anne teaches collectivity through the text soundscores, and the Deep Listening practice of composer Pauline Oliveros. Anne’s international reach as a creative mentor for well-being, is based in one to one conversation and listening walks. A Chalmers Fellow, Anne’s research is interdisciplinary and touches equanimity, microtonal voice, the ocean, wave patterns, listening, and the sound of water. www.annebournemusic.com/listen
