A site specific installation by Ariel Kirk-Gushowaty as part of
Iris Film Collective’s IN HOUSE

ON VIEW THURSDAY MAY 25th 9pm-Midnight
ARTIST TALK SUNDAY MAY 28th 1-3pm

Can photo-based media help us be present in our lives, or does the activity of looking at images pull us out of the moment? Do photographs and films reference the past, or do they exist in a kind of eternal present? What are the limits of consciousness within the photographic frame? How can we feel our own presence more, and help others to do the same?
Ariel Kirk-Gushowaty draws on self-help literature, pop music, early Chinese philosophy, and the experience of spending long hours with a young child to explore these questions. Working with a combination of film loops, GIFs, still photos and sound, she challenges on the one hand, her own sense of presence while making art-work, and on the other hand the possibilities and limits of eliciting a sense of presence within audience members.

Ariel Kirk-Gushowaty is a filmmaker and photo-based artist living in Vancouver BC. A founding member of the Iris Collective, she is committed to exploring experi- mental film in her personal practice, and growing an experimental film community in Vancouver. Ariel has a BA in Philosophy and Cinema Studies from the University of Toronto, and a Photography Certificate from Langara College. Her work has been shown across Canada, the US, Europe and Japan.

Iris Film Collective would like to thank the Fieldhouse Residency Program made possible through the Vancouver Board of Parks and Recreation.
