Artist Talk: Onyeka Igwe and Aliya Pabani
Student curated program by Colin Rosati (OCAD University), Sahar Te (University of Toronto), and, Sara Wylie (Ryerson University)
This program visualizes the complexities of representation in order to question the role of spectatorship in our current complex, sociopolitical landscape. The filmmakers use moving image to render, erase, and bring into focus lives in liminal states.
From bearing witness in the passenger seat or a drone’s-eye view, to the non-human POV of the post-Anthropocene, cinematic conventions are upended in order to delve into these liminal states. The moving image provides us with a window into another perspective that can facilitate empathy, poetics, entertainment, and voyeurism.

Over the past 25 years, the films of Heinz Emigholz have staged a sustained dialogue between cinema and architecture, attempting to reconcile the durationality of moving images with the simultaneity of built structures. Part of his recent four-part Streetscapes series, Streetscapes [Dialogue] uses cinema as a means of both apprehending and producing space, taking as its setting projects by architects Julio Vilamajó, Eladio Dieste, and Arno Brandlhuber, all shot in his idiosyncratic, dissonant style. However, unlike previous efforts, Streetscapes [Dialogue] places the artist in the midst of his own work, as an intensive therapeutic exchange between Emigholz and psychologist Zohar Rubinstein is acted out by avatars inserted into the discontinuous cine-architectural space. Through this intervention, Streetscapes [Dialogue] furthers Emigholz’s practice of thinking space through cinematic time.
Heinz Emigholz will be in attendance.
