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.
