Produced by the Foreman Art Gallery

A forthcoming publication (March, 2012) will be produced by the Foreman Art Gallery with financial contributions from the Canada Council for the Arts and the Senate Research Committee (Bishop's University).

Composed of the multiple screen video installation wandering through secret storms as well as new works, this solo exhibition project addresses the relationship between archives, public memory and practices of surveillance. Presented in a creative mise-en-scène, Christina Battle's moving image work forms the nexus around which will be displayed communication devices (camera, radio, telephone) from private and public collections coupled with documents from local archives, thus situating surveillance as a practice affecting all communities – regardless of their urban or rural specificities.
