E.S.P.: Ecologies
September 14th, 2019

Click here to RSVP!

Join us Saturday, September 14 at 8pm in the garden of Unit 17, Vancouver, for a free screening with work by Gabi Dao, Sarah Rara, and Tiziana La Melia & Maryse Larivière.

E.S.P.: Ecologies continues our investigation into the interdisciplinary space between documentary, narrative, and formalist film, presenting work that complicates notions of science and fiction and the binary systems of knowledge they have come to represent. In this iteration, the natural world becomes a foil for the human environments we have built within it, emphasizing the limitations of human perception and understanding.

Doors at 7:30pm. Entrance to this screening is free but an RSVP is required. A light buffet supper will be served followed by a looped screening of The Pollinators (Sarah Rara, 2014).

Co-presented with Cineworks and Unit 17.

Gabi Dao is an artist, organizer, and co-host, editor, and producer of a weekly radio show called Artspeak Radio Digest with Bopha Chhay, Brady Cranfield, Erik Hood, and Emma Metcalfe Hurst. Her work has been included in various exhibitions and projects in Vancouver at 221a, Spare Room, Dynamo Arts Association, Artspeak, and the Western Front, at the Nanaimo Art Gallery and at Blinkers (Winnipeg).

Recent exhibitions of her work include those at Mercer Union (Toronto), the Vancouver Art Gallery, Oakville Galleries, Walter Phillips Gallery (Banff), and Damien and the Love Guru (Brussels).

Maryse Larivière is an artist, writer, and scholar.
