    Video Pool presents Dominic Gagnon’s Rip in Pieces America

    December 7, 2009 – January 8, 2010
    Video Pool Studio – 3rd Floor, 100 Arthur St (Artspace building), Winnipeg, Canada
    Tuesday – Saturday: 12:00 – 4:00

    Video Pool is very excited to present the North American premiere of Dominic Gagnon’s Rip in Pieces America, a feature-length, single-channel projection of banned homemade short videos.

    As Gagnon watched video on the Internet, he noticed that certain homemade clips were flagged for their content. As they were disappearing from free hosting sites, he started to save and edit them in a capsule format. Working in a gray zone of copyright law, Gagnon’s collection and grouping of the videos acts as a means of contextualization and preservation.

    Dominic Gagnon is an inventor, director, installer and active performer. He considers cinema as a technique for measuring the immeasurable or as a discipline of chaos. Since 1996, he has made public presentations of moving images and installations, invented machines and concepts, and performed sound works at galleries, festivals and biennials around the world. His recent work, Rip in Pieces America, premiered at the Centre Pompidou in Paris.

  • Short films by Curt McDowell

    By on

    "Curt was curt, cute, controversial, and not celibate,” wrote his former friend and collaborator George Kuchar. McDowell (who died in 1987) was a key San Francisco underground filmmaker whose work is rarely revived. Bawdy, funny and sometimes explicit, this program of some of his best short films are infused with joy and fearless intensity of raw emotion.
