The Windows Collective will present film installations for one night at the Shenkman Arts Centre on April 28th.
On April 28th, Ottawa audiences will have the opportunity to view and interact with 6 new film installations at the Shenkman Arts Centre.
The Windows Collective is a group of Ottawa artists who create original and unconventional art events using super 8, 16mm and 35mm film. Established in 2008, the Collective is celebrating 10 years of presenting public film installations in the Ottawa-Gatineau area. They have toured their installations across Canada, from North Bay all the way to Victoria. The current members of the Collective are Dave Johnson, Roger D. Wilson, Paul Gordon and Pixie Cram.
This year’s installations also include works by invited artists: award-winning Québec filmmaker Alexandre Larose and multi-media artist Allison Moore.
Works presented at the event will include interactive shadow puppetry, a time-lapse of a snowmobile trip where the public will be able to manipulate the projector speed, and Larose’s film loop, "Saint Bathans Repetitions: étude 8 (Auckland en noir et blanc)”.
The installation will take place for one night only, on Saturday April 28th, from 730PM until 930PM. The event is free, family-friendly, and wheelchair accessible.
