Arteries: April 2015

Thursday 02nd, April 2015 / 19:21
By Kaelan Unrau

VANCOUVER —

Colin Smith: Inside Out The Winsor Gallery April 1 to May 2

A simple precursor to the modern camera, the camera obscura (Latin: “dark chamber”) consists of a box with a tiny hole cut in one side. As light passes through this hole, it gets projected on the opposing side in the form of an upside-down but proportionally correct image. In “Inside Out,” Colin Smith applies the obscura technique to motel rooms and airstream trailers, infusing these commonplace scenes with a sense of mystery and nostalgia.

Lis Rhodes: Light Music (screening) Western Front April 9, 8 p.m.

Presented as part of Western Front’s “Reading the Line” exhibition, “Light Music” – a 1975 film for dual projectors – attempts to bridge the gap between image and sound. Combining simple line drawings with creative editing techniques, director Lis Rhodes explores the sonic-visual properties of 16mm film, as well as the perturbing undervaluation of female composers.

Leslie Hossack: Registered Nikkei National Museum & Cultural Centre opening reception April 11, 3-5 p.m.

In “Registered,” photographer Leslie Hossack reconstructs the struggles and experiences of Japanese Canadians circa World War II. Through a mixture of vintage photographs, newspaper clippings and government documents, Hossack offers a fresh look at one of the most shameful moments in our nation’s history.

Ron Tran: The Kitchen Garden at Home/Store – 221A – April 9 – May 23

Ron Tran explores a specific example of consumerism in art – the trip to Chinatown. What interactions are happening on a social or financial level? Who does it, what do they buy, and what does that say about the changing city scape of a city with colonial roots and a rich Asian community? Tran examines the questions with objects and products from the neighbourhood.

Henri Robideau: Eraser Street – Hubris, Humility and Humanity in the Making of a City! – grunt gallery – April 9 – May 16

Photographer, writer and filmmaker Henri Robideau is taking his new and old photographs of Vancouver’s residents over the past 40 years to Grunt Gallery. Art for the inner activist, these pieces have challenged planning and politics, and give voice through images to populations often ignored.
