Jillian McDonald: Valley of the Deer

Esker Foundation
Calgary AB – Jun 15-Sep 6, 2013

Canadian artist Jillian McDonald has quickly built an international reputation for work that employs archetypes and themes from horror films. Her most recent project, Valley of the Deer, is a surreal, three-channel high-definition video installation created while McDonald was in residence at the Glenfiddich International Artist Residency for six months. Inspired by the other-worldly romanticism of the landscape, the local folklore and pagan legends, she filmed 50 workers from the distillery, masked as characters and animals to haunt and hunt their lone prey who wore a deer mask.

Artist Talk with Jillian McDonald on Horror, Landscape, and Visual Storytelling July 26, 6:30-7:30pm.

The Glenfiddich Distillery, situated in the heart of the Scottish Highlands, is surrounded by forest, the ruins of a medieval castle, a natural spring and Loch Ness. Complete with foggy weather, rainbows, waterfalls and deep mossy glens, the craggy region offered an ideal setting for the simulated scenes of horror and supernaturalism. An atmospheric soundtrack by Dave Roberts captures sounds of the forest, water and Scottish pipe music, and the resulting film and related stills are immediately arresting and provocative.

McDonald is an associate professor of digital art and performance at Pace University in New York. Her projects and installations have been widely produced and shown internationally – in the United States, Canada, Spain, Venezuela, Sweden, Estonia, France, and elsewhere.
