Using animation, sounds, warping and time shifts this 5 minute video loop runs forwards and backwards looking for forgotten details, mimicking the way memories are replayed in the mind. LoopLoop is made from an image sequence Patrick Bergeron captured in a train traveling to Hanoi in Vietnam. Bergeron filmed the houses along the railroad. The 1000 images of this sequence have been stitched into one long panoramic image. Moving elements have been seamlessly integrated into the panoramic still activating it in subtle and surprising ways.

"The photographs of Greg Staatsare concerned with what motivates thee act of viewing as it moves into the time and space of the real, in search of an encounter. The image becomes the 'freezing' of this gesture: a small moment in a continuum, a brief ending barely captured in the image." -Francois Dion

The performance iwll be about 30 to 40 minutes, part of the opening night and includes the video screening of The Fish Film, centered between the silver cloth panels. An important part are two slide projectors mounted at a 45 degree angle to the 'screen', containing specific slides (stills0 from the moving image. The video is projected not onto a screen, per se, but into wide sheets of quality drawing paper. My own actions consist of entering into the freeze-framed image of the film at which point the two projectors replicate the same image.

In conjunction with the 4th LIVE Biennial of Performance Art, The Al Neil Project presents four evenings of interdisciplinary work by, and inspired by, Vancouver innovator Al Neil, a seminal force in the multi-disciplinary practices that have flourished on the West Coast over the past 50 years. Al Neil's career as a musician, composer, writer, bricoleur, and performance artist has spanned 60 years. His influence on Vancouver's artistic communities has been profound and enduring. This project endeavours to both assess and celebrate Neil's contribution to the development of avant-garde practices in Vancouver. LIVE 2005 will feature four events celebrating Al Neil's legacy in the community, including concerts, screenings, readings and performances.

As part of their Online World Tour, the avatar performance band, The Gates, proposes to web-cast a unique large-scale avatar performance to be web-cast live (in real-time) on the large projection screen at the Grunt Gallery for one night. They will use the classic avatar chat software, Digital Space Traveler, as their performance site. Their performances are both pre-determined and improvised.The Gates can either perform as an electronic music duo or as performance artists in the style of Vito Acconci and/or Gilbert & George. In other words, The Grunt curator can have the freedom to determine what form of performance they will do. Usually, The Gates only performs for 15-45 minutes. Every performance on their World Tour is unique. No one performance is the same. In the case of the Grunt Gallery, The Gates is willing to perform a unique piece for anywhere from 20 minutes to 2 hours, the Grunt can choose the favoured length. - The Proposal

Marlene Madison's new works Audition Tapes and Open Call explore notions of "Celebrity". Audition Tapes, a single screen video installation, consists of three "cold" readings of a prepared text in a format that closely resembles a screen test. Open Call is the reading by 15 actors and non-actors of texts they receive when they arrive at the event.

Converging in the space of a gallery, the proposed exhibition, Anatomica Nervosa, will unify a synthesis of two project series, Project Series: Preserves and What She Saw. Installed concurrently, a body of work will surface, each project[ion] intent on informing an independent yet synchronous discourse of bodily disclosure, a narrative set in reference to a visual and textual process coherent within interdisciplinary practices. Realized on site, the work will reflect an atmosphere of archive, multiple sites constructed of multiple mediums performing multiple readings, a visual shifting of textual boundaries between the mediums and the exhibition state. The exhibition will unfold, collecting, compiling, and housing images, the objects of photographic image and the specimens of anatomical waxes. Over the months, the proposed work will continue to actualize, substantially increasing in collection and size, image and text yet; the premise and [psycho] analysis will remain unaltered. Accompanying the exhibition is further support material, in particular, a text entitled Lapsus Lingae: [Slip of the Tongue], a narrative of fact/fiction/friction that informed and initiated the beginnings of this project, and photographic images wherein the sites were of chance and circumstance, the collection only a construct in assemblage.
