PLEASE DON’T SIT ON THE FURNITURE

New Media Gallery is delighted to present Evann Siebens in performance. This is another in a series of exploratory exhibition responses held in the gallery.

Using her own dance background, Siebens physically responds to the works in BRINK using movement, audio, video and a good dash of humour. An incomplete history of dance and performance will be questioned and explored. No participation necessary. All will be revealed. Everyone will keep their clothes on.

Evann Siebens makes media with movement. She has exhibited her projects at galleries such as Eyebeam and Centre Pompidou, while her documentaries have been screened at MOMA and on PBS. A former dancer with the National Ballet of Canada and Bonn Ballet, Evann graduated magna cum laude in film production from New York University. She shot dancers in New York for over 15 years including Lucinda Childs, Bill T. Jones and Baryshnikov. Now based in Vancouver, Evann has participated in residencies at the Banff Centre, Dance Theater Workshop, UNIT/PITT and ACME/UK with Keith Doyle. Recent projects include a screening at the Lincoln Centre Film Society, New York, as part of Dance on Camera’s Experimental Shorts program; MediaArtLab/Urban Screen, Russia; dc3 Art Projects, Edmonton; ISEA2015, Gallery 295, Wil Aballe Art Projects, and Burrard Arts Foundation, Vancouver. Evann recently won the ID/Identities Istanbul Best Video Prize, and performed ‘Translating the Archive’ at the Western Front, Vancouver. She is represented by Wil Aballe Art Projects (WAAP) in Vancouver.

BRINK is an exhibition that pivots between absolute control and anarchy. Presenting: Miguel Angel Rios, David Bowen, Jacob Tonski, Nelmarie du Preez, Stefan Tiefengraber.
