Judy Radul: Words No Pictures No Words
Catriona Jeffries, Vancouver, BC - To Jun 16
Merging form, media, cognition, language and affect, Judy Radul’s ongoing festival of the unexpected has once more produced an exhibition where contraption collapses into sculpture, perception into portraiture, page into cinema. The centrepiece this time is Man’s Hands (2018), a reading pavilion inspired by Michael Snow’s 1975 intermedial artist book Cover to Cover. Among its parts are two page-turning machines, two kinetic sculptures and a small cinema. Also in attendance is Radul’s custom-made “live” video system.
