Location

Auditorium 100 McCaul St., Toronto, Ontario

Julie Andreyev is a Vancouver-based artist whose practice explores the social and spatial character of the city using mobility and performance; and animal consciousness through interactive installation and video. Her work has been shown across Canada, in the US, Europe and Japan. Andreyev is Associate Professor in Digital Visual Arts at Emily Carr Institute, Vancouver and co-curator of Interactive Futures.

Andreyev will discuss her recent practice including her projects Four Wheel Drift and Animal Lover.

The Four Wheel Drift projects explore the city as mobile tableaux in order to link up and investigate public space. Video and audio representation of site, space and location in the city are interwoven with aspects of audiovisual representation that take their motivation from popular culture, specifically car culture and club culture. Serving as hybrid forms, a fleet of customized cars equipped with interactive, audio-video technologies cruise the city seeking engagement as urban performance. These projects contribute to experimental practices by artists, such as the Situationists International (1957-1972). The Situationists used the nautical metaphor “dérive” (drift) to imagine (as a psychogeographical sea) traffic flows and pedestrian routes that avoid the mechanistic functioning of the capitalist city. To learn more, visit www.fourwheeldrift.com.

Animal Lover is a new category of practice for Andreyev, which explores animals as subjects. In these works interactive video and forms of musical expression are used to explore animal experience and human interpretation. Here, the intent is to create a space of tension between the human and animal as a momentary opportunity to question assumptions and expectations about animal intelligence and awareness, as well as our larger relationship to animals and our role in relation to them.

Art Creates Change is made possible through the generous support of the Musagetes Fund at the Kitchener Waterloo Community Foundation.
