Lindsay McIntyre is a fierce advocate for analogue film and handmade techniques. Using experimental approaches she has built an alchemic documentary practice that is deeply connected to expressions of place and location, oral histories and moments in time. Through techniques of layering and repetition, heavily processed and textured film and looping audio, McIntyre weaves personal portraits into the surface textures of the film. Her work expands the singular moment, the gesture, and motion to emphasize the personal, the subtle and everyday.
Lindsay’s performance of A Northern Portrait will anchor this evening, followed by a screening of works by Lindsay and two films selected by the artist that speak to her own films and practice.

A Northern Portrait is “A personal meditation on the Arctic in the form of a live 16mm looping performance on nine projectors. Images are layered with high-contrast mattes and colour textures on four 16mm projectors on a single screen, creating one changing image. The optical audio is looped as well, separate from the images, and mixed live on five 16mm projectors…each performance differs somewhat”. (Lindsay McIntyre)
