2017 Fine Arts Graduating Exhibition

 

Colin is my real name: Benny Nemerofsky Ramsay

29 September - 27 October 2017

On view at President’s Cottage, Mount Allison University.

The artist revisits Colin Campbell’s pioneering 1972 video True/False, which features Campbell alternately affirming and negating delicate statements about himself and his private life. Initially intended as a remake, the video instead summons Campbell’s voice to speak once more; a fragile, reversed palimpsest. The video component of Colin is my real name was filmed at Mount Allison University in Sackville, New Brunswick, where True/False was originally produced.

Presented in collaboration with Struts Gallery & Faucet Media Arts Centre.

True/False appears as part of Colin is my real name thanks to sponsorship from Vtape and the Estate of Colin Campbell.
