    Bio

    Evann Siebens makes media with movement. She has exhibited her projects at galleries such as Eyebeam and Centre Pompidou, while her documentaries have been screened at MOMA and on PBS. A former dancer with the National Ballet of Canada and Bonn Ballet, Evann graduated from New York University. Now based in Vancouver, she has participated in residencies at the Banff Centre, UNIT/PITT and ACME with Keith Doyle. Evann recently won the ID/Identities Istanbul Best Video Prize, and performed at Western Front, as well as New Media Gallery, Vancouver. Recent exhibitions include MediaArtLab/Urban Screen, Russia, Lincoln Centre Film Society, New York, and screening a commissioned work during FacadeFest on the exterior of the Vancouver Art Gallery. She is represented by Wil Aballe Art Projects in Vancouver.Curriculum Vitae

TIME REVERSAL SYMMETRY

2018 / 8 minutes / 16mm colour + B&W film

time reversal symmetry is part of LOoW – a collaboration between artists and scientists at TRIUMF: Canada’s national laboratory for particle and nuclear physics. Shot on 16mm film, Siebens uses pedestrian movement to represent the oscillating dance between matter and antimatter.

+++

In time reversal symmetry Siebens uses dance, movement and media to visually exemplify how neutrinos ‘oscillate’ between flavours when they travel. The switch between 16mm colour and B&W film represents the oscillating dance between matter and antimatter. Additionally she has played with the concepts of charge-parity symmetry and time-translation symmetry, as seen by mirroring and asymmetry. Artists working with the body and media are referenced, such as Yvonne Rainer, Trisha Brown and Bruce Nauman; particularly his 1966 film Manipulating the T-Bar. She was also interested in the multiple meanings behind the term ‘time-reversal’ and what that means for the aging technology of 16mm film, as well as the aging female body.

“We study this phenomenon using both neutrinos (matter) and anti-neutrinos (antimatter) and are looking to see [if] matter oscillates with a different frequency to antimatter. If true, this violates one of the symmetries of nature, time-reversal symmetry, and could explain why we live in a matter dominated universe.”
