January 16 – February 15, 2015 (Window projections Mon – Thurs, dusk – 10pm)
Location: Community Gallery
Artist: Jim Riley
Curator: Denis Longchamps
Reception: January 20, 5-7pm
This two-channel window installation is a continuation of Jim Riley’s exploration of temporary public art. The video installation will be visible after dusk in two windows facing Lakeshore Road at the Art Gallery of Burlington. During other gallery hours, monitors will play the videos in the Community Gallery of the AGB.
Riley’s art practice involves taking a moment of time, slowing it down, and placing it in a circle for the audience to examine. The circle acts as a portal to that moment, for the viewer to explore. As a non-linear story teller, Riley invites the audience to pause and view the two videos on a winter evening walk or, in a fleeting moment, from their vehicle.
