    Bio

    Evann Siebens makes media, performance and photos with movement. Her lens-based practice negotiates the human body as an archival site and the politics of the female gaze. She danced with the National Ballet of Canada and the Bonn Ballett before studying film production at New York University. Recent exhibitions and screenings include: Witte de With (Rotterdam, 2020), WAAP (Vancouver, 2019), Belkin Gallery (Vancouver 2018), Vancouver Art Gallery Façade Fest (Vancouver 2017). Evann recently screened a film at Lincoln Center in New York City and won the ‘Outstanding Overall Work’ prize at the Light Moves Festival in Limerick, Ireland. Her work from ‘A Performance Affair’ in Brussels, Belgium was featured on the front page of the International New York Times in 2019. She is represented by Wil Aballe Art Projects in Vancouver, Canada. Curriculum Vitae

Ferry

2008-2009 / 30 mins / High Definition Video

A single screen holding a quartet of video, Ferry depicts the ocean crossing from the city of Nanaimo to isolated Gabriola Island, part of the Canadian Gulf Islands. Shot at different times and weather, the individual videos depict the entire 20-minute journey from the everyday and the mundane to the rural, the bucolic, the idyllic concept of the cottage or cabin. Sounds of an infant’s impatience mirror the viewer’s impatience as the journey is mapped out in full. Ferry crossings figure in mythological texts, but this is more reminiscent of a family voyage and the boredom associated, than any crossings into the underworld.

Video of Ferry runs almost 30 minutes long
