TO BE OR NOT TO BE: A VERY IMPORTANT VERB

PAMELA TZENG | CALGARY

Enter the subconscious mind of a woman suspended between Western and Oriental realities.

to be or not to be: A Very Important Verb is a solo of negotiation and discovery;  an offering of vignettes into a surreal world that exposes the weight of cultural expectation and the light of being.  This work began as an investigation into Tzeng's identity as a second-generation Canadian born Taiwanese.  The solo deals with questions surrounding foreignness, exoticism and the polarities of bicultural identity.

 

THE EXHIBITIONIST

MING HON | WINNIPEG

"Hon is mesmerizing.she is able to instrumentalize her body in various ways: at one moment she is an orgasmic object of desire, at another a contortion of pain, at still another, a delicate bird..."

Robert Enright Border Crossings Magazine December 2012

A photocopier with its signature flashing, white, fluorescent light to transfer and mass produce the original placed on the glass.  A woman dressed in black trench coat makes endless photocopies of herself reproducing warped images of the female form. An Exhibitionist as someone revealing oneself in public, she is a performer performing for the spectators to spectate.
