Description of work
Blue is an experimental film and dance documentary that features members of the Canadian Women’s Ski Jumping Team as well as settings in a rapidly changing Downtown Eastside. Both are in a state of transition, whether it be waiting for a chance to compete or witnessing the transformation of a community. Blue marks these historical, geographical and cultural changes.
Artist statement
The project takes off from Yves Klein’s photograph, Leap into the Void, representing an acrobatic engagement with cityscape and calculated risk akin to the efforts of ski jumpers to defy gravity. It is the transitional space between taking off and landing that is expressed in relation to the colour blue. Women ski jumpers presently occupy an additional liminal space as they both wait and prepare for a chance to compete in the Games. The Downtown Eastside is currently faced with rapid transition. Blue attempts to track these historical, geographical and cultural changes, through a cinematic presentation of embodied movement (of cityscape and of physical flight).
