So So Lovely

a solo exhibition by Laura Taler

May 11th - June 30th 2018
Opening: May 11th 7pm - 10pm

I am thinking a lot about the future past — a strange hybrid of a past that never existed dosed with an Ursula Le Guin-science-fiction-like futurism. This future past reminds me of the images I am creating of a past that has never been nor can ever be. And of how tomfoolery or ‘making things up’ is an act of joy, hope, and defiance; because you can’t change the future unless you can imagine it differently and to do that you need to be a bit foolish and sneaky. So So Lovely is a cluster of responses to how repetition, ambivalence and enthusiasm mark my relationship to time.

Laura Taler is a Romanian-born Canadian artist working across a range of media including performance, film, sound, sculpture and installation. Taler began her career as a contemporary dance choreographer before turning her attention to filmmaking and visual art. Throughout her career Taler has explored the links between movement, memory, and history by using cinematic and choreographic devices to articulate how the body is able to carry the past without being oppressed by it. She has been a resident at the Banff Centre for the Arts, Centro Cultural Recoleta (Buenos Aires), Carleton Immersive Media Studio (Ottawa), and a fellow at the Institute for Cultural Inquiry (Berlin). Her work has been screened in festivals, exhibitions, and broadcast internationally. Awards include a Gold Hugo from the Chicago International Film Festival, the Best Experimental Documentary award from Hot Docs!, and Best of the Festival from New York’s Dance on Camera Festival. Publications include Tension/Spannung (Turia+Kant, 2010), Revisiting Ephemera (Blue Medium Press, 2011) and Embodied Fantasies (Peter Lang Publishing, 2013). Taler holds an MFA from the University of Ottawa.
