Canadian artist Erin Shirreff, winner of the 2013 AIMIA | AGO Photography Prize, is known for works that blur the boundaries between image and object. One of Shirreff’s earliest video works, Sculpture Park (Tony Smith) (2006), is a 37-minute film based on a study of five outdoor works by iconic sculptor Tony Smith. Drawing on photos culled from books and the Internet, Shirreff constructed maquettes based on each of Smith’s monumental sculptures. (This excerpt focuses on his Spitball from 1961.) There’s a kind of melancholic yet mysterious presence to the black forms of Shirreff’s sculptural models as they slowly resolve against the darkness in a storm of artificial snow. Shirreff intends this not as a critique to Smith's work, nor as an homage. Rather, she sees it as a signal of the inherent flux of sculptural context and media perspective over time.
