Cassils: Movement

Walter Phillips Gallery, Banff, AB - To Jun 9

by Robin Laurence

Born in Montreal and based in Los Angeles, visual artist and performer Cassils has here created an immersive, multisensory installation that documents and transforms their dance project, Human Measure. Through film, Rorschach blot-like photographs, choral music, light, and mechanical vibrations that disrupt the surface of a reflecting pool, Cassils redresses aspects of mid-20th-century art making, examines violence against the trans* body, and asserts queer collectivity and self-determination.
