Wrought: A short film about decay
*BioFilm Productions, 2022 (22:24)
“In a world obsessed with growth, we deny ourselves the tender possibilities of decay.”
Wrought explores how we construct categories for the world. It examines the categories of spoil, ferment, compost and rot, coaxing audiences to decompose the binary of human and non-human. We are forged from the relationships that transgress such binaries; we are all, indeed, wrought.
Warning: Images of decay, rot, and a short strobe sequence.

*Q&A via Zoom to follow with Joel Penner (Winnipeg) & Anna Sigrithur (Montreal)

 

O Death (litany)
Annie Martin & Janice Isabel Jackson, 2021
(4:57)
O Death is a multidisciplinary project by Annie Martin and Janice Isabel Jackson. Sharing an interest in songs in which the singer addresses death as an interlocutor, we began an ongoing exchange, out of which arose lyrics, song, performance, video and painting.
With gratitude to the Canada Council for the Arts

Karen Campbell, 2022 (3:15)
“For most of twelve months I coughed
Each day started with forty-five minutes of sharp hacking
against ribs
throat dry
Coughing ceased after second chemo treatment
six weeks after diagnosis
two weeks before qualifying for a Stem Cell Transplant
I was admitted, December 30, 2015 for a twenty-one day stay (Part I)
I was admitted, February 16, 2016 for a twenty-one day stay, my rebirth (Part II)
I arrived with three pairs of underwear
and two bags brimming with art supplies…”
