WITH BARRY DOUPÉ IN PERSON
PLATFORM centre for photographic + digital arts presents the conclusion of our four-part monthly screening series curated by Clint Enns.
Language Formed in Light has been comprised of different film screening nights featuring experimental films and video art by contributors to the medium from Canada and the United States. The works in this series were selected due to their innovative use of cinematic language.
Previous screenings included work by: Shana Moulton, Ben Russell, and most recently Michael Robinson.
In this work, ambiguous symbols, repetition and ambiguity are used to explore universal themes such as anxiety, failure and the rites of passage. In addition, Doupé constantly plays with audience expectations creating surreal (and often humourous) situations.
The final screening in this series is three works by Barry Doupé:
Thalé (2009, 5 minutes)
Distraught Mother Reunites with Her Children (2005, 25 minutes)
At the Heart of a Sparrow (2006, 29 minutes)
