Artist Talk: Saturday, March 13, 2021 at 12:00 PM (PST)
Oxygen Art Centre presents an artist talk with Brian Lye on Saturday, March 13, 2021 at Noon (PST). The talk will be presented for free on Zoom. R.S.V.P. by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org to attend. Everyone welcome.
The artist talk will share information about Lye’s residency and current exhibition, ABOVE ABOVE BELOW BELOW, as well as his artistic practice. This online event will also feature discussion on the topic of Lye’s exhibition, crystals.
Lye conducted research for an experimental documentary on crystalline minerals across scientific, mining, and healing fields, which this exhibition and new series of films are derived. Utilizing discussion-based research, Lye investigated human and natural relations to crystals. Interviewing experts on crystals from the region forms the foundational material for Lye’s experiments in 16mm analogue film.
Fascinated by the semiprecious stones and their capacity for transmission, amplification, and new age applications, Lye draws upon his background in filmmaking and installation to create an immersive body of work on view in the exhibition, ABOVE ABOVE BELOW BELOW.
Lye is a filmmaker, artist, and educator who lives and works in Nelson, BC. His practice is focused in analogue film production, merging the everyday with formal experimentations in play, special effects, and psychogeography.
