This program, specifically prepared for PLATFORM Centre for Photographic + Digital Arts' year-long investigation of the palimpsest, explores how this concept is deployed in contemporary experimental film and video in Canada. All of the work presented here explores the dialectic of erasure and recovery that animates theories of the palimpsest: film is over-exposed or otherwise treated by hand as though it were itself a surface for inscription; found images and footage restores the otherwise forgotten and ignored; replication and imitation are explored as mnemotechnic; media archeological explorations ask whether what we can bring back to the surface can be apprehended separately from the specificity of their mode of dissolution. Showcasing the work of emerging and established Canadian film and video artists (e.g. Maddin, Phillips, Araneda), this program covers a wide-range of affects, techniques and experiences. No, actually, its really a lot of fun!
