Or Gallery is pleased to present a special radio play adaption of Isabelle Pauwels’ ,000, completed in 2015. The play follows two entwined characters: the formerly prominent city of New Westminster, and a disillusioned Actress Slash Dominatrix, as they struggle for legitimacy.
The first iteration of this work was presented in 2014 at the Experimental Media and Performing Arts Centre in Troy, New York, as an immersive installation with 27 channels of audio, 9 channels of video, sculptural elements and choreographed lighting. ,000, has also been adapted into a single channel video that was recently screened as part of the DIM Cinema series at the Cinematheque.
Isabelle Pauwels is a New Westminster-based artist who uses a blend of performance and documentary realism in multimedia installations and video to explore the relationship between narrative conventions and everyday life. She won the 2009 Brink Award and was shortlisted for the 2013 Sobey Award.
