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.

IcarusCar

2008-2014 / 4 channel installation / HD Video

IcarusCar is a screen-based sculptural installation involving the myth of a flying car. Inspired by the real history of Molt Taylor’s 1949 Aerocar One and the folly of Icarus, an abstract narrative is created with four channels of video and sculptural artifacts from the film. Using a full-sized 1969 MGB GT and a scale model of the same, the media is set in the rural southern Alberta winter landscape, where an old crumbling barn and long desolate roads provide the place for subject and setting.

+++

Nostalgia for another time in history, the relationship between the automobile, the Canadian prairie landscape, and the inventor or artist are all part of the dream to push beyond gravity and use human ingenuity to create something new, to fly.

Produced in co-production with The Banff New Media Institute, The Banff Centre, Banff, Alberta, Canada
