These films follow a group of people In the Polynesian communities of Taumako and Vaeakau who are building traditional voyaging canoes, or vaka, using only local, sustainable, natural materials.  They sail hundreds of miles with no modern equipment, finding their way using comprehensive knowledge of wind, waves, currents, stars, and observations of phenomena that are unknown to modern mariners.

We will also be screening short film and video works such as Shíshálh Nation artist Margaret August’s Resurgence Spindle Whorl.

Land Lines Film Installation

FLUX Gallery is pleased to present a new film installation by Ottawa artist Penny McCann. Exhibition APRIL 12, continues to MAY 3.

PENNY.jpg

Land Lines (of time and place) in no particular order moves through a landscape forever disappearing from view, evoking the continual loss of the present.

Utilizing Super 8 and 16mm film shot over several years, much of it hand-processed then transferred digitally, this multi-screen installation creates a meditative space where moments in time flicker, joining with images manipulated by chemical processes and the human hand to create a psychic landscape of time and place.
