Join us for a talk by Vancouver-based artist Marina Roy. By using techniques of play and bricolage, Roy deconstructs the "pile-up of language and spectacle" to unearth new meanings and conceptions of reality. Mal de Mer, a new video work that Roy made in collaboration with sound artist Graham Meisner, is on display as part of Landfall and Departure: Prologue.
[In a quiet voice.] "Meet me in silence where Esplanade meets Port Way"
Participants will meet at the intersection of Esplanade and Port Way in South Nanaimo.
As part of both Landfall and Departure: Prologue and Broadcast Archipelago, join artist Elisa Ferrari for a sound walk that takes us outside of the gallery and into the urban environment to explore the unique acoustic ecologies of the Nanaimo Harbourfront and shipping wharf. Participants will map out the distinct audio landscape of this area through encounters with ambient and pre-recorded sounds.
Draw: March 4, 12 pm
