Summer Lab Hours – Important Information

tumblr_nyrg7aLInd1qzdvk4o1_1280

The Post-Image Lab is closed to non-members for the month of July and will resume operations and normal hours to students and non-members in August. Inquiries can be sent to postimage.research@gmail.com but please note that response time for inquiries will be delayed as the coordinator is also out office for the month of July.

Important Updates:

1. Lab Closure

For the month of July, members may still use the lab but there will be no booking system available or technical support. It is on a first come first serve basis. We are well stocked with printing materials but if  you still run out of your favourite paper, there is nothing that can be done. If you do use the lab, please shake White and Metallic Silver ink cartridges on the solvent printer.

2. New VR Station 

There are a couple new stations at the back of the lab designed for VR research, which is being led by new post-image member Daniel Cross. Please don’t alter the placement of their setup. When the lab reopens at the beginning of August, we can rethink how to design the space for the upcoming academic year.

3. Welcome new members!

A warm welcome to new affiliate, student and faculty members to post-image! We are looking forward to a productive and exciting new year at post-image with several cross-cluster and interdisciplinary events in the works. Please do not hesitate to approach me (Pascha) about ideas you may have for events or questions concerning upcoming cluster activities for the 2018-19 academic year.

4. Upcoming end-of-summer event

We are hoping to have a meet and greet at the end of August or beginning of September at the Post-Image lab. This would be a great opportunity to share event ideas, projects-in-motion and new work among members. 

We will also be launching a catalogue of the 2017 print fundraiser to coincide with this event. 

More info on this event and how you can participate will be forthcoming in August.

Wishing everyone a safe and relaxing summer break. See you in August!

THE POST IMAGE RESEARCH CLUSTER PRESENTS: OUTRE-VIE / AFTERLIFE EXHIBITION

The Outre-vie/Afterlife group is made up of thirteen image practitioners whose work aims to develop a concept of “afterlife” that belongs to the language of images. Taking its name from a work by the late Québec poet Marie Uguay, the group is united by a shared dialogue about storytelling and the vicissitudes of memory. The group has exhibited large-scale photographs, video projections, experimental writing, and sound installations in Québec and abroad. These collective engagements have generated new collaborative modes of production and dissemination, including a practice of archiving their collective art-making process. Outre-vie/Afterlife was formed by Raymonde April in 2013.

Le collectif Outre-vie/Afterlife est composé de treize artistes de l’image dont le travail vise à développer un concept « d’outre-vie » qui appartiendrait au langage des images. Avec un nom inspiré d’un poème de la regrettée Marie Uguay, le collectif puise son inspiration dans un dialogue partagé autour du récit et des aléas de la mémoire. Outre-vie/Afterlife a présenté des expositions de photographies à grande échelle, des projections vidéo, des écrits expérimentaux, et des installations sonores au Québec et ailleurs. Ces engagements collectifs ont donné lieu à des modes collaboratifs de production et de diffusion inédits, dont une pratique d’archivage de leur processus de création collectif. Outre-vie/Afterlife a été fondé par Raymonde April en 2013.

Exhibition opens November 28th at 5pm, in the 10th floor hallway of the Concordia EV building.

Monitor 12: Figures Pointing Outside the Frame

 

Friday, November 24, 2017 – 7:00pm

articule is pleased to present SAVAC’s Monitor 12: Figures Pointing Outside the Frame, a video program co-curated by Toronto-based curator/artist Oliver Husain as well as Jakarta-based programmers at ARKIPEL International Documentary and Experimental Film Festival, Otty Widasari and Yuki Aditya. Following Monitor 11’s program These Monsters are Real, this marks the second year that SAVAC invites a local curator to collaborate with international curator(s).

Figures Pointing Outside the Frame presents works that consider the peripheries of the image and the content within as equally significant. Whether film, video, or a still image, the technology dictates the parameters of the frame. Decisions an image-maker makes regarding the composition, duration, performance, and location further contribute to a viewer’s experience. Collaboration is formed between the technology, image-maker, and subjects- though this collaboration is often expanded with elements, situations, and conditions beyond that which is scripted. In this way, the program advocates for the viewer to consider the environmental, labour, historical, economical, gendered, and social conditions that influence the constructed experience.

The screening will be followed by a discussion between Indu Vashist, SAVAC Executive Director, and Nazik Dakkach, articule Board member.

articule’s gallery and washroom are partially wheelchair accessible.

Yoshimi Lee Thesis Exhibition: PoĂ©tique de l’Etre PassĂ©

Please join Cluster member Yoshimi Lee for her thesis exhibition PoĂ©tique de l’Etre PassĂ©.

” Le vĂ©cu est la matière brute de ma pratique. Le processus de crĂ©ation le façonne, le retravaille. J’utilise la photographie, la vidĂ©o et l’écriture pour explorer des thèmes liĂ©s Ă  mon identitĂ© en tant que femme dĂ©racinĂ©e. Ă€ travers le rĂ©cit de ma propre histoire familiale, je cherche Ă  comprendre comment se vit et se dĂ©finit le dĂ©racinement. Des questions aussi diverses que la migration, la possession ou la non-possession d’une identitĂ© sociale, culturelle et linguistique, la patrie, le poids du passĂ© et la mĂ©moire – qu’elle soit rĂ©elle, inventĂ©e, recrĂ©e ou collective – sont au cĹ“ur de ma recherche. ”
