Abstract (English)

"Land Lost is a solo exhibition that attempts a modest lineage of Christie’s art practice: from experimental film, to performance, through to photography and installation. The exhibit looks at the influence of spectacle and performance found in Christie’s work, the implications of nature in the artist’s films, and the personal sometimes self-deprecating world of DIY technology. Here, Land Lost means to negotiate between one’s own site-specific state and the non-narrative space of memory and the mind. Amanda Dawn Christie, recently shortlisted for the IMAA National Media Art Prize, has gained notoriety for her alternative processes and approaches to celluloid, and has brought to life a unique fusion of technology-driven performances, whilst remaining somewhat bound to electronics from our so-called past. For Amanda Dawn Christie: Land Lost, the artist carefully suspends reality, creating a fictional space with subtle streams from her life, but does not shy away from rupturing the dream-state to confront the viewer with the interlinked relationship of the self and the demise of technology.
A bilingual catalogue of the exhibition, containing full colour reproductions and four essays written by Mireille Bourgeois, Scott Birdwise, Pip Chodorov, and Amanda Dawn Christie, are available for purchase . The catalogue was launched on November 19 during the FICFA (Festival international du cinéma francophone en Acadie)." -- Site web de l'artiste.
