Project Montreal Shorts
PROJECT MONTREAL SHORTS
Exhibition of five short films at Project Vivant, Montreal, November 2014.
Concept/curation: Eve Stainton and Sorcha Stott-Strzala.
The project was an investigation into collaboration and decision making. We asked 5 Montreal based artists with different practices to collaborate with us on a film project. We worked with each artist under a time limit of four days to conceive, shoot and edit the footage into a short.
The project then became an attempt to arrive together quickly at an agreeable place. This pushing and pulling of thoughts under the pressure of time created an unnerving relentlessness to achieve satisfaction, a place where one can learn a lot about ones own practice and tendencies, insecurities and intrigue.
This was presented in an installation at Project Vivant, Montreal. Each work was shown in a different way; large 2 channel video projection, headphones and a television set, large projection onto fabric, small window projection from VHS camera, projected video loop onto the wall.
Collaborating artists: Jason Auger, Emily Gan, Adam Kinner, Andrea Peńa & Andrew Tay.
