Responding to Hannah Arendt’s notion of a human desire to estrange oneself from the overwhelming elementary force of nature, Calgary-based artist Tomas Jonsson has curated a selection of videos that destabilize the terms of our interface with non-human animals and uncultivated surroundings.
In a one-night screening in Connexion ARC’s main space, Threshold will present seven performance-based video artworks.
Threshold is the fourth iteration of Screening of Performance Art in the Natural Environment (SPANE), a video festival organized by Norway-based performance artist Johannes Deimling, guest-curated by Tomas Jonsson, and first screened for Mountain Standard Time Performative Art Festival.
