VICTORIA.- The Art Gallery of Greater Victoria builds on the earlier Crossing Channels Collaboration with MediaNet with the opening of the new series Crossing Terrain. This series features film and video works by five artists from across the country and beyond. The exhibition begins with Marshlands and Crashing Skies by Ottawa artist Penny McCann.

Penny McCann’s work spans twenty years and her experimental pieces use a range of formats and gauges, including analog and digital video, super 8 and 16mm film and more recently, hand-processed film techniques to create interior meditations on landscape, memory and time.

Crossing Terrain is co-curated by the AGGV’s Chief Curator, Michelle Jacques and MediaNet’s Director of Programming, Catlin Lewis, and runs from Nov.15, 2013 to March 30, 2014 in the AGGV’s LAB Gallery.

"Film and video is such an exciting and varied aspect of contemporary art production,” said Jacques. “MediaNet is a local organization that promotes and supports media artists and by collaborating with them we are able to showcase some of the innovative and compelling work that is being produced throughout North America.”

The exhibition continues with work by local artist Richard Raxlen, Montreal-based Isabelle Hayeur, Toronto-based Jon Sasaki and New Hampshire-based Jodie Mack. The works encompass a wide variety of approaches and themes, including Raxlen's
improvisational and evocative hand drawn animations, Hayeur's powerful examination of our relationship with water, Sasaki's conceptually-driven performance-for-video, and Mack's animations of found fabrics that question the role of decoration in daily life.

“MediaNet's purpose is to support artistic expression through the use of film, video and other forms of media art,” said Lewis. “We are pleased to be collaborating with the Art Gallery of Greater Victoria to present some of the most exciting creative talent working in the field.”
