Dutch Light - Textual Actions
Categories :FIFA Experimental
Here marshalore establishes strange equivalencies between texts and images, while conveying her fondness for Dutch culture through various images and a long and dense text. The invention of oil painting by Van Eyck, she informs us, was based on the special quality of Dutch light. The construction of this video, in fact, brings to mind works by Dutch painters: floating layers of events take the place of the layers of oil paint.
The multidisciplinary artist marshalore is the co-founder of Vehicule Press and Vidéo Véhicule (PRIM). She was also the director of Véhicule Art Montréal, one of Canada’s first artist-run centres. Her work draws its inspiration from environment studies, social behaviour and symbolism. Her current research focuses on the intersections of language and culture, an area embracing language, symbols and images. She has also worked with Aboriginal women on the symbolic representation of post-diaspora self-identification. Her works have been presented in North America, Europe and Japan.
