Lewis Colburn
Interregnum (1815-1969)


Sep. 11, 2009 — Oct. 23, 2009

Interregnum (1815-1969) takes the form of a large-scale, mixed media installation. The project consists of a life-size replica of Napoleon Bonaparte's carriage, crashed on a stage set of the Moon. Flanked by a backdrop depicting the lunar surface, the wrecked carriage is surrounded by a raised boardwalk from which viewers experience the piece. By drawing a line from Napoleon's defeat at Waterloo to the now-faded promise of the Apollo landings, the project asks us to question the significance we assign to these supposedly pivotal moments in history.

Videos


Sep. 11, 2009 — Oct. 23, 2009

Alison S. M. Kobayashi is a visual artist working in video, performance, installation and drawing. Her interest in found narratives resulted in two video works, From Alex To Alex and Dan Carter. Finding a lost letter in the first case, and a discarded answering machine tape in the second, Kobayashi imagined identities for each person mentioned in the narrative and then performed all the roles herself. For her exhibition at Hallwalls, Kobayashi will be presenting selected video works, including a new Buffalo-based work derived from a narrative literally found on a Buffalo sidewalk in 2004. In 2006 she won the TSV Artistic Vision Award for Best Local Short Film at the Toronto Reel Asian Film Festival and in 2007 was awarded the Mississauga Arts Award for Best Emerging Artist. Her films have been shown in Canada, the U.S. and Hong Kong. She was born and raised in Mississauga and is currently working in Toronto.

Alison S.M. Kobayashi: Videos is curated by Carolyn Tennant, Hallwalls Media Arts Director.
