Isolated Landscapes – Catalogue

Book

Price: 10.50 (gst inlcuded)

Shipping: $3

Exhibit catalogue for Video Pool Media Arts Centre’s 2017 exhibit Isolated Landscapes: Video by Prairie Women (1984-2009) curated by Kathy Rae Huffman.

Isolated Landscapes was a major exhibition of the history of video art by women who live and work in the central Canadian region or who were informed by years of residing in (or growing up in) the region. The nineteen works in the exhibition (by twenty-one artists) were produced between 1984 – 2009 and play a prominent role in the history of Winnipeg’s legendary Video Pool Media Arts Centre. The project represents pioneering, early video art production by women artists working in various genres and reveals their ability to utilize the available technology of the time in response to the region’s perceived isolation and starkness, reflected in geographical, cultural and personal landscapes.

With an essay by Kathy Rae Huffman, interview with The Ephemerals conducted by Jennifer Smith and information about each video and performance part of the exhibit.

Sweet Dreams and Bitter Realities – DVD

COVER SUGAR FOR DVD

DVD

Price: $15

Shipping $4

by Lawrence Lannoo and Phil Cholosky

Sweet Dreams and Bitter Realities presents the challenges and struggles endured by a Manitoba farming family as they helped establish a sugar industry in the province. Adiel Lannoo was an immigrant farmer who came to Canada dreaming of establishing his own farm. That dream led him to south Fort Garry, only two kilometers from the site of the Manitoba Sugar Company as it was beginning operations in 1940. The destinies of the farmer and the company were linked for the next thirty years of struggle and toil. Adiel would not live to see the prosperity harvested from the sugar crop by his sons, but that boom period would be cut short by a letter arriving one afternoon in 1974 from the City of Winnipeg.

The documentary included interviews with family and industry insiders, as well as movie footage of one of the last harvests by Adiel’s sons in the mid-1970’s.

On the Bright Side of Down by Grant Guy

img_0175Book
Price: $22.00
Shipping: $4

A new book from one of Video Pool’s Founding Members!

On The Bright Side of Down by Grant Guy. He takes us on a road trip across the changing landscapes of time, styles and form. Grant takes us to the last stand of Johnny Ringo, to the back-road circuses and sideshows that pulled their wagons across the Great Plains and Prairies of the United States and Canada, and growing up in a small town where hopes are big, temptation out of reach and outcomes undetermined. The living, the dead and the inanimate get a chance to say their piece, sometimes deadpan and sometimes tongue- in-cheek, in this collection of writings of truths, half truths and lies. Reality. Legend. Myth.

Grant Guy is a Winnipeg writer, playwright, theatre director and designer, who has designed and directed productions across Canada. He has written a number of plays for his theatre company Adhere + Deny (1999-2014). His work on the idea of the Old West appeared in his monologues during the 1980s and ‘90s, reappearing in his unproduced play Westward Ho, which eventually was turned into the short story The Go-Devil. He continues to write short stories, poems and subjective travelogues on the Canadian and American Old/New West history and myths. Grant’s writings have been published widely and he has written responses to several art exhibits. In 2004 he was selected for the Manitoba Arts Council’s Award of Distinction.
