JAnick Burn - Le Relais
Eastern Bloc is happy to present the work of three artists having exhibited in the context of Art Matters, a student run art festival based out of Concordia University. Stéphanie Creaghan and Ralista Doncheva will present their respective video works Mote and Still Moving, whereas JAnick Burn will present video documentation of her performance Le Relais with Alexandre Hurtubise. Mote, by Creaghan, explores the artist’s relationship to semantic construction through language and her body. Still Moving, by Doncheva, is composed of found footage of daily activities, putting them into conversation with each other on a dual screen projection. Finally, Le Relais, by Burn, is a video extract of a more than two hour endurance performance between a man and a woman, transferring a cube of ice between them until it melts, while standing on a platform of wine glasses.
