In his engaging career survey, Winnipeg video artist and longtime prof teaches lessons in cause and effect.
Pathways, Obstructions & Survival Lessons begins abruptly, with a challenge to our perceptions and an unsettling call to action. Made circa 1979 and less than 90 seconds long, The Chair is the oldest and shortest work in the career survey of experimental videos by Winnipeg artist and longtime School of Art professor Alex Poruchnyk, which screens at Cinematheque Oct. 8 at 7 p.m.
What follows is a diverse, approachable 45-minute program that touches on genres of video art spanning performance footage, animation, impressionistic montage and plain-spoken documentary. http://ow.ly/TeJtv
