Stephanie Yeap spoke with Catherine via video call between London and New York City…

  1. 1. Describe your business in 5 words:

The phrase “outside the white box format” really corresponds to what I currently do at InSight Artspace, my interactive gallery. And what I mean by the white box is the traditional gallery model that never changes. I believe people have to see art in different perspectives in order to enrich their lives and you can’t achieve that with the same old format.

Truth and Beauty Digital Gallery Presents An Exclusive Online Exhibition MEMOIRE INVOLONTAIRE Cindy Konits

Sunday, October 6th, 2019

Truth and Beauty Digital Gallery present an Exclusive online exhibition and Canadian Premiere MEMOIRE INVOLONTAIRE  Part III : Post – Cinema by Cindy Konits. It runs to 28 October 2019

 

The MEMOIRE INVOLONTAIRE project is a personal exploration of representation and memory in 8mm family film created in 1940 and interpreted in the digital age.

Cindy Konits –

 Through the gaze of a man operating an 8mm film camera long before my birth, I view both familiar and unknown adults interacting with each other and children in ways concerning but familiar. Slow motion playback of 1-hour-B&W and 1-hour-color film reveals detail such as large blue stripes in a wide ruffle sundress that bring to mind the blue couch next to a breezy open window where I sat, age 4, watching a black and white television with a man by my side – the filmmaker himself. Marcel Proust named this recognition of the past in the present moment Memoire Involontaire (In Search of Lost Time 1871-1922). (more…)
