Artist talk and screening
October 2, 2002 at 8PM
Implant (58 Wade Avenue, Unit 12)
FADO is pleased to present Israeli artist Adina Bar-On's performance, Disposition. This walking tour, lasting between one and two hours, is presented as part of FADO's ongoing Public Spaces/Private Places series.
In Disposition, Adina Bar-On reframes personal stories in the context of local surroundings and circumstances,. Her work speaks to the concept of viewpoint, using local geography, history and culture to influence the shape of her shared journey with the audience. As she leads people on a walking tour, she presents situations, instructions and images that question the familiar, and bring to the forefront the variability of both physical and emotional points of view. Her work challenges us to reconsider the factors that determine what is seen and not seen.
Although the performance is free, attendance will be limited, so advance reservation is recommended. This performance is an outdoor walking tour, so audience members are reminded to dress appropriately.
Adina Bar-On will also present an evening that features her performance HOME OF COURSE, a screening of recent video works, and an artist talk at Implant, a new performance space, on Wednesday, October 2 at 8 pm. Adina explains this short, emotionally charged performance: "This work is my attempt to question what appears as the inevitability of destruction in the process of deconstruction."
A version of this event will also be presented in Hamilton on Friday, September 27 as part of the Art Gallery of Hamilton's Sevenseason program.
