Spectacles of Intimacy explores the role of artist as social spectator, one who witnesses intimate (private) spaces and moments and translates them into the public sphere for debate and discussion. This exhibition showcases the work of six Vancouver Island artists, each of whom rigorously engages with contemporary definitions of spectacle. Guest curated by Lora Carroll.

Multi-disciplinary Cree-Métis artist, Jude Norris, employs idiosyncratic combinations of 'Native' material, language, traditional creative practice, and iconography with elements of western technology, art practice, theory, and language. Grounded by a strong aesthetic sensibility, and often a subtle humour, her work is an exploration and expression of the oddness and challenges of contemporary colonized reality.

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.

A series of sculptures composed of commonplace objects together with objects the artist has constructed from wood, aluminum, resin and lead. The latter materials are often cast in multiples from moulds initially made from collected artefacts, such as bones. This exhibit also incorporates monitors showing simple, repetitive moving images in such a way as to mask the frame of technology, such that the fluidity of image and sound remain.

Margaret Glavina's sculptural installation MUSEum focuses on the natural history museum as a site for the display of the natural world. But Glavina's vitrines focus on death of and in the natural world and her constructed still lives read as momento mori. The work explores notions of the natural and the unnatural as related to the museum display of specimens. Margaret Glavina is a Vancouver based artist who has studied at ECIAD and Capilano College.

Co-presented with CSA Space, Amelogenesis Imperfecta (How Deep is the Skin of Teeth) and Beautoxification, two related bodies of work that will merge David Khang's dual vocations - in art and dentistry. A project that combines disciplines from art and dental science to produce microscopic laser-drawings onto epithelial cells. This work is based on research conducted at SymbioticA Centre for Biological Arts at the University of Western Australia. Khang experimented with growing enamel producing cells into shapes referred to as "enamel sculptures". While the project did not reach its original objective to grow enamel, the cells produced during this experiment were cultivated onto glass slides providing an area in which the cells could be drawn on with a precise cutting laser.

Media and installation artist Josephin Böttger presents a new work entitled Dynamo Lines, which looks at the fragmentation of cityscapes caused by social constructs, urban development, traffic, lights and movement. Three looped video projections depict time-lapsed motion and light from various vantage points of city grids and traffic. Working with musician Sergej Tolksdorf, Böttger’s video installation includes footage of actors emerging as a work team, observing busy highway arteries. But their movements are edited so they appear sporadic, contrapunctual to the rythm and flow of light from the streets. Josephin Böttger presented Trapez at New Forms Festival. The video documents the construction work that occurs at a building site; time and reality is distorted by time lapses and drawn elements that blend into the footage. The video examines construction and demolition, both key components of urban development.
