Wyn Geleynse: Slackwire and Other Situations

February 14 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm MST

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every day that begins at 10:00am, repeating until February 24, 2018

Opening reception in the company of the Artist: Wed, Jan 31 from 6-8pm with artist  talk at 6:45pm.

Wyn Geleynse is one of Canada’s pioneer film and video projection artists with a significant international visual arts career spanning a period of nearly 40 years. His work raises questions about self and identity, commenting on the human condition with a subtle blend of irony and humanity. Geleynse had worked primarily with installation-based projections in the past, and over the past decade, he has explored the notion of film projection as a metaphor for projecting one’s thoughts and desires.

The exhibition is anchored by the following iconic multi-media installations: The Critics Speak: An Homage to Jasper Johns (2013); Just…(2002); The Slackwire (Funambulist), (2002); and Aura (1991-2). Complementing these works is a series of photographs titled The Pairings.
