Ken Dryden / You Are Being Remembered
Multidisciplinary artist Clive Holden presents two new installments in his ongoing project that gives the audience a prominent role in defining "utopia". Ken Dryden presents a randomly generated matrix of visuals drawn from archival material to create an "avant garde biography" of an iconic hockey player and politician. We literally never view Ken Dryden the same way twice, and must come to a personal understanding of the identity we wish to create for this public figure. You Are Being Remembered juxtaposes personal Super 8 landscapes with high-definition satellite surveillance images on two simultaneous cinemascope screens creating a micromacro dichotomy and leading us to question when and where Utopia might exist.
