Hand-held flashlights are tools for sight and lucidity in otherwise unlit spaces. Strange Light is a continuous video installation that explores the contemplative yet uncertain act of searching in the dark. A single small light passes over objects and surfaces across multiple settings, glimpsing only a few ambiguous details of a larger unseen space- one that is uncannily impossible. The light invites viewers to enter the dark join the search, considering the question of what and of where.
Presented in partnership with EMMEDIA Gallery and Production Society.
ABOUT THE ARTIST:
Jordan Schinkel is a multidisciplinary artist currently living in Calgary. In 2017, he graduated from the Alberta College of Art + Design, where he received a BFA in the Drawing department. Jordan's studio work fluctuates between drawing and installation-based video, and is prompted by an interest in processes of reordering and reconstructing fragmented moments and images.
