2014 | installation
President’s Cottage, Mount Allison University.

Friday, September 29:
Exhibition preview and remarks with the artist: 7:00 pm
Opening reception: 7:30 pm

The artist revisits Colin Campbell’s pioneering 1972 video True/False, which features Campbell alternately affirming and negating delicate statements about himself and his private life. Initially intended as a remake, the video instead summons Campbell’s voice to speak once more; a fragile, reversed palimpsest. The video component of Colin is my real name was filmed at Mount Allison University in Sackville, New Brunswick, where True/False was originally produced.

Hours: 2:00 pm – 5:00 pm, Tuesday to Friday.

Presented in collaboration with the Owens Art Gallery, Mount Allison University.

True/False appears as part of Colin is my real name thanks to sponsorship from Vtape and the Estate of Colin Campbell.
